I haven't been able to use Internet Explorer for a while. In itself, that doesn't matter to me, but I'm having some oddities with other software (like turbo lister) so I've been trying to get IE to work.

This is on Windows XP Pro.

First I had IE8 installed. Everytime I started it up, I would see the window for a second and then it would disappear. No error message.

I uninstalled IE8, which downgraded me to IE6. IE6 came up, but the first page displayed to customize my settings remained blank. Opening a new tab, typing in a url would do nothing; the url would just disappear when I hit enter. To get rid of the "customize my settings" page I went into the registry and told IE that it had already down the "run once" command, but getting rid of that didn't help.

I installed IE7, just because it was the only version left. Like 6, the homepage (which is msn.com) is blank. If I type in a URL like google.com I get a message that http://google.com is currently unavailable.

With both IE6 and IE7, the close button does not work, I have to kill it through the task manager.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
