Believe it or not, I’m blaming this one on Sun!  I tracked the problem down to the Microsoft Virtual Machine, the old Java VM Microsoft was forced to stop developing and supporting thanks to Sun’s pointless legal assault.  God only knows why Sun would want Java less supported.  Perhaps it’s so the only way to run Java these days is through Sun’s VM, which reminds you, every fucking month like clockwork, that THERE’S A JAVA UPDATE AVAILABLE AND SUN IS AWESOME AND DOWNLOAD OPEN OFFICE NOW NOW NOW!

The solution: uninstall the Microsoft VM (which you should do anyway, it’s old and unsupported).  That fixes IE; I leave to you the decision whether it’s easier to live without Java or put up with Sun’s bullshit.

Luckily, there’s a tool Microsoft has that will remove the VM.  Get it here:

Ha!  And you thought Microsoft had your back here!  You should know by know the entire IT world is against you all the time.  Try here:

Anyway, once you get this tool, just run it and pray you didn’t have anything that depended on that tool, because there’s no going back.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{06EEE834-461C-42c2-8DCF-1502B527B1F9} is where i found the 2 instances of the same problem you are having, it was a big problem for me. Delete the two instances and then manually retype the address in IE and the page will come up.
