Red face Microsoft internet explorer 6 SP1 wont open properly

A co-worker's computer with windows 98 on it, has internet explorer 6 SP1 on it. When I double click internet explorer on the desktop, nothing happens and I am forced to ctrl + alt + del to end task. I tried repairing internet explorer but it didnt do any good, can someone help me?
