R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = Liens

The log looks clean although I'm not sure of the Liens entry. Did you name that?

Download, update & run anti malware from malwarebytes.org

is it closing or crashing?

do you get any error message?!

i would like to know what happens when you run your computer in safe mode and then open IE 7.0?

The good part is, you got a chance to use Firefox and get accustom to it :D

I have IE 6.0, the stable one as far as i know.

First of all, thx for the help :D

Don2007:
Im not really sure you mean when you say Did you name that ? ... although I really doubt I did.
I downloaded, updated & ran malware : nothing came out wrong.

Dark_Lord:
Here are the chains of events that led to my problem:
I had some trouble with Excel (coudlnt open it :? ) So I tried restoring my computer to an earlier time. It worked great !!! Excel was opening easily and working fluently... thats when IE stopped working. When I open IE, if Im lucky, I get to see my home page for a split second and then the window closes... no error message.

Its really weird... anyways thx again for the help.

Yes, I meant did you name the links folder, Liens? A links folder is usually called Links. It's rare but good that anti malware didn't find anything.

Look at the event viewer for errors.

Wow !! I really dont understand anything about this computer... I had lost all hope so I decided to install Firefox, which worked great by the way. I used Firefox for 2 days, and today I retried uninstalling and reinstalling IE (for the 3rd time !!)and guess what....it works !! :?

Anyways, thanks for all the tips guys. Im happy to have found this forum for my futur problems.
