    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I have to agree with Peddant, that you`re much better off using Firefox, except for Windows updates.

    However, that doesn`t fix your IE issue.

    First thing to try is redownloading IE from the Microsoft download center, and reinstall it.

    Also, scan your system for viruses/malware etc, just in case.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I didn`t mention uninstalling anything.

    Just go to the link I gave you, download the file, and install it. See if it solves your problem.

    I suppose you could try a Windows repair as per this thread HERE

    If you decide to do the repair. Please be aware that you will need to update your windows again, as doing a repair install will wipe all your windows updates.

    Regards Howard :)
