    Default IE will not loead from the IE icon

    One of my Laptops will not load IE . when I click on the icon. I normally have IE set as Yahoo News as the home page. I can access IE by going through Google, entering Www.nz.yahoo.com I have tried altering the home page to something else and even deleting the home page. I still get message” Page cannot be displayed”. I am running WIN7 and all the latest updates have been installed. This has happened about two weeks ago and I suspect it was after a MS update installation that it started. I have tried to restore to before that date but it did not make any difference – the same message appears.
    My other Laptop runs WIN8 and I have no problem with it.
    All ideas to find a solution will be gratefully accepted.
