If you installed IE8, uninstall then reinstall. See if that helps.
For the missing toolbars, which you may have to set up to show after reinstalling IE8:
1) Press the F 10 key. When the menu bar appears, RIGHT click in a empty spot next to the last thing listed. Click Menu bar to lock it in place.
2) Next click Command Bar for the bottom bar with Tools on it.
3) If you have the Command Bar, click Tools, choose Toolbars and then click Menu Bar.
OR right click in an empty space at the top, choose Menu Bar.
If you have no empty space, point your cursor to a thin sliver underneath the address bar and right click.
If you use IE9, the space between the end of the address bar and home icon will work. In the screenshot the arrow is pointing to the thin sliver below the address bar, this is where you will need to right click.
