In windows 7 , IE 11 cannot-enable-or-disable-any add-ons

Fellow W7 users,

This is a challenge for anybody who can help me ...nobody could figure it out yet !


In windows 7 , IE 11 I cannot-enable-or-disable-any add-ons via tools , there is a stopsign in front of it.

There are no malware or virusses
I am the administartor
I have re installed IE11 several times via tools advanced etc.
Security level in IE 11 is normal. Enhanced security is off.
I even installed Local policy Editor, and via gpedit.msc, did the following :
1, click Start menu

2, type gpedit.msc in search box, press Enter to open Local Group Policy Editor

3, expand User Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->Windows Components-->Internet Explorer

4, in right window, find out and double click Do not allow users to enable or disable add-ons

5, click Not Configured or Disabled

6, click OK to save settings




Allas, everyhting failed, and I still cannot change my add-ons, it is blocked. See image.
The image is dutch but it speaks for itself.

Who can help ?

Thanks

Erik

Hi and Welcome to the Forum
Has this just happened? If so try a system restore to a point behind when it happened, see here:
System Restore - Microsoft Windows
If not try running sfc /scannow see here:

Hello mitchell,

Thanks for the reply..system restore is not an option anymore.

I did run sfc/scannow, and it said that there were damaged files, but that they could not all be fixed ..

The log i could not open ..

Do you have any ideas ?

Why is system restore no an option?
Need a bit more information to help you here. What log were you unable to open?
Run sfc /scannow again and make a screenshot of the final window. Use the snipping tool for this see here:

Can you post a snip of the IE11 All Add Ons window?

This is the preferred, best way to upload an image or a file to a post.

Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Press the ALT and PrntScrn keys at the same time, this will capture only the active window to use in Paint or your preferred graphics editor.


You may also upload a photo or image you already have on your PC,as you would a file, without using the Snipping tool.

Sorry did an edit to my post above and this crossed other posts. Have you tried clicking the "Show more restore points button. Did you delete the previous restore points?

The so called Stop sign is normal,
What the other problem is your most likely not set to Show All Add-ons,

Take another screen shot/ it might not help us because the objects will be in a different language
Then take another simply opening Internet explorer,
I what to see your homepage or what ever page that opens when you open ie,
In-Private browsing will not allow add-ons to be enabled,
Enhanced protection mode will also hamper the ability to activate add-ons, = uncheck the option,
