Try this...close IE and run CCleaner. Then delete the short cut to IE on your Task Bar. Create a new short cut for IE.
Let us know if that works.
Use CCleaner to cleanup the caches, temporary files, cookies, etc. Pay attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars...especially Yahoo.
No need to use the Registry Cleaning Tool and it has the potential to cause a problem if used.

EDIT: Delete short cut and/ or icons on your desktop for IE.
If the above doesn't solve the problem, use the program below.
Shortcut Cleaner Download
Shortcut Cleaner is a utility that will scan your computer for Windows shortcuts that have been hijacked by unwanted or malicious software. When Shortcut Cleaner finds bad shortcuts, it will automatically clean them so that they do not open unwanted programs.
When run, Shortcut Cleaner will scan various locations on your computer for Windows shortcuts. When a shortcut is detected it will check properties for a possible hijacking. If one is detected, it will automatically clean the shortcut so that it no longer opens the offending program or web site. When the Shortcut Cleaner has finished scanning your hard drive it will create a log file on your desktop called sc-cleaner.txt and then display it. This log file will contains a list of all the shortcuts that were detected and cleaned.
As of version 1.2.3, Shortcut Cleaner will also clean hijacked Registry entries associated with known hijackers.
