Links never open!

Since the latest Windows update, I have not been able to open any links... they just open a blank page that says it is going to the correct address but the address bar is empty. I have to manually type it in, and then it works. I can't even print a page because that gets an error and then nothing happens whether I hit Yes or No:

An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Line: 291
Char: 1
Error: Automation server can't create object
Code: 0
URL: res://ieframe.dll/preview.js
