Awesome
Okay lets do something real quick,
Lets reset Internet explorer using this exact process,
Use the Start menu search tell me if everything goes as shown,
Reset process first opening Internet explorer
Do Not enable any add-ons as the popup is shown,
Immediately after click on No on the add-ons popup,
Hold the Alt key down and press the T key and then press the B key,
Or Menubar/ Tools/ Compatibility view settings,
Uncheck the box to Download comp-view lists from Microsoft/ And close the popup window.
Let me know when that's done,
Cheers.

about #34 TrashZone, sounds good, but I think I need more detailed info on the process, I'm just a newbie and a little slow. about->reset IE>using Start Menu? I will try and see how it goes.
BTW, I'm not a fan of Add-ons or Browser Helpers or any of that other stuff. I try and keep it simple, don't even want any of that MS Bing stuff.
So if you got any tips to pass on, greatly appreciated! Thanks again!

Let me know when it's done,
Cheers.

I've also found Alt+TB or Menubar/ Tools/ Compatibility view settings,

Uncheck Download comp-view lists from Microsoft automatically is a good thing to do/ except for Intranet leave Checked and of course Uncheck view all sites in comp-view. will help either version of ie.
Delete your Browser history to get rid of any prior downloaded Compatibility view lists already downloaded,
