i had the same problem and fixed it. Delete IE icon from desktop & start menu. go to my computer >> open Local Disc (C:) >> open Program Files >> open Internet Explorer >> Click on IE icon and drag it to desktop. This new Icon should work perfectly. The icon on your desktop was the old one.

Add-on Management and Crash Detection

Internet Explorer's Add-on Management feature lets you view, enable and disable the list of add-ons which can be loaded by Internet Explorer. Add-ons include browser helper objects, ActiveX controls, toolbar extensions and browser extensions.

To view or modify the add-ons on your computer by launching Manage Add-ons:

1. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, click Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.
2. To disable an add-on, select it in the list in the Manage Add-ons dialog box and select the Disable radio button.
3. To enable an add-on, select it in the list in the Manage Add-ons dialog box and select the Enable radio button.
4. Click OK to confirm.
Note: Disabling an add-on does not remove it from your computer. It simply prevents Internet Explorer from executing the add-on's codeā€”it does not prevent other software from executing the add-on. If an add-on is disabled, website pages that rely on that add-on may not work as expected. For more information on Add-ons, click the "Learn more about add-ons" help link in the Manage Add-ons dialog box.
When Internet Explorer experiences an error, Internet Explorer's Add-on Crash Detection feature analyzes whether an add-on was running at the time of the crash. If so, you will be presented with a dialog box that tells you which add-on was running. If you click Advanced, the Manage Add-ons dialog will launch. If you click Continue, you will see the standard Windows Error Reporting dialog.
Add-on Crash Detection is on by default. If you are an administrator and wish to disable Add-on Management or Add-on Crash Detection, technical details are available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Lin...
