    Internet Explorer 6.1 would not start, even clicking directly on the .exe,
    just a window flicker. Tried installing IE 7. After repeated failures and
    much changing of settings it did install but also would not start. A KB
    suggested a fix was installing IE 8.
    It worked, but get a DEP or window closed message to any new URL or even
    clicking on home or a setting on the google page. Had same problem
    intermittently for awhle with IE 6 and 7. It will go to any URL provided at
    start, such as an icon for e-bay, but once there- no switch. After doing all
    the steps here: kb/926449, the problem persists.
    Have run several malware checkers including MS’s online site, malwarebytes,
    Avira, a2, Norton, cc cleaner, Avg and more- no pro’lem. Checked all
    quarantined, etc. files- none possibly related to XP or IE, no relevant
    registry changes. Mozilla Firefox kept on chuggin’.

    Check your Windows Event viewer for more information. Both related to the
    installation & startup problems.
