Internet Explorer Flashes On and Off

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 2.392 GHz / 510 MB
Need help---suddenly when I click to on my internet explorer icon my home page flashes quickly on and off. I can not make any modifications to the IE settings in that the page does not stay on the screen long enough to make any corrections to Internet Options. I tried using system restore with no luck. I read some things on my other computer that I should download this or do this to my explorer but I can not do that because I can not get it to work. Can anyone give me a tip on how to fix it? Not sure how it happened---I made no computer adjustments----had another person using the computer over the weekend and not quite sure what they did to cause the problem thanks

Run the system file checker to repair internet explorer. Click on start then run and type in sfc /scannow. Note the space between the c and the /. This will repair and/or rreplace any corrupted system files.
