I have Windows XP version 5.1, service pack 3, and cannot open IE v7. Mozilla Firefox opens fine, though both always took a long time to open (1-2 minutes) and frequently locked up ("not responding", even though task manager showed CPU at less than 50%, sometimes less than 10%).

I tried run iexplore.exe and nothing happens
I tried open without add-ons and nothing
I right clicked and deleted all the temp files
I right clicked and unchecked "enable third party browser extensions"
I tried run c:\program files\internet explorer\ieproxy.dll and got "Load Library Failed - the specified module could not be found"
I tried run sfc/scannow and nothing

Any help?

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
