    On your start menu, choose the program list in Programs -> Startup If "Internet Explorer" is listed there, then delete it. Also check the homepage of internet explorer and change it to about:blank. Follow these steps:
    • Open Internet Explorer
    • Click on Tools menu
    • Go to Internet Options
    • Click on 'Use Blank'
    • And click Apply
