The simplest and probably the most effective in this case would be to do a system restore to a date before you had any problems. This may be the very first restore point if it was a day or two ago. If the restore point was just before a Windows Update then when the restore completes, manually run Windows Update, search for updates and install all important updates. After this just test your browser to make sure it works. If you want to double check if this was caused by malware, just run Malwarebytes. If you copy/paste the results of the scan in your reply, others can review it to be sure you are in good shape.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

System Restore is probably the quickest way forward but creating a new shortcut is a possible alternative. You search for the browsers program file (iexplore.exe if it is Internet Explorer). Note its location and use that as the target for your shortcut.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
