Windows 7: Internet Explorer is broken

Internet Explorer is broken

If I start my IE, he just pops up for a milisec and then closes again...

I tried to "remove" him via 'add/remove windows features' (whats it called?) and then add him again, but the problem stays.

You could try the following fixes from Microsoft
Fix Internet Explorer add-on problems when IE hangs or freezes
Playing video files crashes or freezes Internet Explorer or Windows
Improve performance, safety and security in Internet Explorer

If none of that would work you can try to spot errors with Event Viewer.

Open the Start Menu, and type eventvwr.msc in the search box and press enter.
If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes (Windows 7) or Continue (Vista).
In the left pane of Event Viewer, double click on Windows Logs to expand it, then right click on System and check for errors (see screenshot). If no errors related to IE will be in System, please check Application section.

Please post description of errors occurred within the described time.

MadSupra354, I hope you are joking. Everybody makes mistakes.
Plus, there are a number of people on this forum with English as a second language.

I know that, I just genuinely didn't know what he meant...

Heh yes, there are many many languages that assign gender to all objects. So anything can be a "He" or a "She" where we would use "It".

Lol, I meant 'it' pops up. My native language is German, where you, as correctly stated above, assign a gender to many objects. And the Internet Explorer is male, don't know why though.

I'll try out the fixes, thanks.
