Just an idea:
I've heard of this happening with Netscape - when it was still Mozilla. In fact it happened to me. In this case, I was upgrading to a newer version, and I had uninstalled and deleted the old version. However, the new version would flash up on the screen then blink out. I then uninstalled the new version and reinstalled the old version and had the same problem. It turns out that Mozilla places, or at least used to place, a file into a folder that had no name connection with Mozilla or Netscape. This file and folder had to be deleted in order for the new installation or reinstallation to install properly. I'm afraid I cannot remember the file name.
I don't know if the same kind of thing could happen with IE. Did you upgrade it recently or maybe uninstall and reinstall it?
It is possible that some of the files of the browser are damaged or corrupted in which case perhaps an uninstall and reinstall might be in order, but I am just guessing here.
