I have yet to solve this issue. Still trying to resolve without messing with the profile. Everything is pointing at a bad user profile.

Safe mode with networking,
Shut down your machine, Unplug-Hold the power button down for 30/45 seconds (Power Drain)
Power up and Tap the F8 key continuously until you see a black page with white text,
Use the down arrow key to toggle to safe mode with networking/ hit the enter key.
Login as usual

Hello DMBFAN,

I thought maybe this might help, has helped in other circumstances for me.
I am In tech Support other then Here.
If you are a 64bit OS(Operating system) Try renaming the Windows defender folder to Windows.old/ In both Program files and Program Files(x86). Sometimes there is an issue with the Defender program that can cause what you are experiencing

Good Luck,

sixwheeler2011, I know this thread is months old, but you are my hero. After hours of reinstalling IE (which caused its own problems), checking settings, looking for malware, and trying all sorts of other random things from all over the internet, literally this one thing made it suddenly work. THANK YOU for posting this!!!

Hi LisafromQueens,

I am so glad to hear it is working now :P At least you may know that you don't have any Malware (per-say)
I also hope that this was the one thing that worked. Sometimes in trouble shooting applying multi-pal solutions
One May forget witch one actually fixed the issue.

If you are still experiencing problems Post a new thread, and I will try to find you. Here occasionally to lend a hand. For the most part there are very good qualified people here to help. Cheers and have a great weekend.
