I am running Kaspersky Internet Security

I keep getting a warning saying "Proactive Defense", "Attempt to run browser with command line parameters..."

I am just opening IE8. There is a default webpage ( other than that nothing else. This also happens if I open a file (say a .xps) that opens by default in IE.

I don't want to shut of my proactive defense, but I've tried the option "Add to Trusted zone" but it doesn't make a difference to my User Experience.

This does not occur with either FFX or Chrome.

Any idea's on how to stop Kaspersky from stopping IE?

I suspect that you have a virus that has changed the file association or the Open verb for IE so that it tries to open at a specific site. Have you tried running a virus scan? And using multiple tools such as MalwareBytes?
