1. Go to Internet Options.
 
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
 
3. Scroll down & locate Security.
 
4. Click the checkbox "Enable Enhanced Protected Mode"

Nice one. I think deleting the desktop icon and creating a shortcut again and pasted there will also have the desired results too.

Yes, that will fix the problem when the shortcut is not working or the internet explorer is not coming up.

This is the fix when we have nothing on the screen or error message on the webpage..
IE10 has some advanced web browsing which blocks the pages if they are not compatible with the browser.. Also it has crash recovery settings which will not allow the webpage to come up if its is not loaded properly..
