Windows 7: IE8 will not load

IE8 will not load

I have a new Lenovo computer with a 3.0 AMD dual core processor. It has 3.0 G of RAM. I was running IE8 but now it will not load at all. I have updated and run scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot search and Destroy but that has not helped as of yet. I have also disabled all of the add ons in IE8 but it will still not load. Firefox loads and performs fine but I would like to be able to use IE8.
I have tried to use Hijackthis but it seems to not perform correctly.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

But need to know what AV you are using as sometimes there have been reported problems with some AV programs and IE8?

Go to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer, find the iexplore.exe and try to start it from there. If it starts, you have only a shortcut problem. If not, run sfc /scannow in elevated Command Prompt.

I went to command prompt and the message I got back is that sfc/scannow is not an internal or external command?
Please advise

There is a blank in front of the slash. If you miss that, the command cannot be recognized. Just paste the command from my posting.
