Try using Mozilla Firefox. It's a much better browser than internet explorer, and is safer. It also transfers all your favorites and stuff from internet explorer automatically. Plus you can set the browser up in tabs so you can switch between pages easily and efficently.

This might fix your problem and is an easy soloution.
Here is where you can download it:

http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

Plus its free... who can complain It's definetly worth a try, before trying to fix internet explorer

EDIT: Oh sorry lol, i forgot you couldn''t...honestly lol...

Could you by any chance use another pc to transfer it to cd or something?
