    Let me make sure i have all the double negatives right...and rephrase

    Your IE browser works fine when you open it without any addons. Correct?

    Best solution is trial and error to determine which ad-on is causing problems.

    1. Close all IE Windows
    2. Opend a new IE Window
    3. Tools -> Manage Addons -> Enable or Disable Addons
    4. Set: Show Addons Currently Loaded in Internet Explorer
    5. Disable each addon shown
    6. Repeat until the problem starts again
    -----Enable one Addond
    -----Close all IE Windows
    ------Start IE Windows
    ------Does IE work OK. Yes, keep looping until no.
