Windows 7: Javascript not working in IE11

No tool bar. AV, link scanner, identity protection (however that's supposed to work), and email scanner. Each can be enabled or disabled individually, assuming it is doing what it is telling you it is doing.

I've been using AVG for years and I can't say I've ever had any problems with it. That being said, it is simple enough to get rid of to see what happens.

Update: I uninstalled AVG. No Luck.

Update:

I went to this site -
https://www.whatismybrowser.com/dete...script-enabled
and it says, yes, JavaScript is enabled.

Next, I disabled JavaScript in IE and went to liveleak.com, the site I first had problems with. Not only did the comments not display, the videos wouldn't play, either. I turned JavaScript back on and the videos started working again.

This suggests to me that some JavaScript must be working and some is not.

Thursday night my upgrade to Windows 10 was available. I started that and went to bed. After work Friday I was playing around, configuring things. All is well. Edge is going to take a little getting used to so I was still using Internet Explorer, but it was working fine. I only checked liveleak and break, but I assume the rest of the sites that were giving me trouble were working as well.

Something changed between Saturday morning and Saturday evening, though. JavaScript quit working again. It's not 100% like before because videos on break.com still work, but that didn't happen right away before, either. Other than that, symptoms are exactly the same in Windows 10 as they were in Windows 7.

I do have the Edge browser now, which is working fine, but I'd really like to figure out what's going on here.

FWIW - Windows did install updates today.

Edit: Just noticed something else. Not sure if this is a clue or not. While searching for an answer to an unrelated question I was directed to a site called superuser.com. When I went there an alert came up at the top of the page that said "Super User requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load."

Perhaps I wasn't clear. I was using IE 11 in Windows 10. JavaScript worked perfectly in Windows 10 for a day then started doing the same thing it was doing in Windows 7. JavaScript works fine in Edge (and Firefox). No longer works in IE.

Solved!

Did a little poking around using F12 to see exactly what was happening. It ended up being tracking protection. When I disable tracking protection everything works fine. Apparently it blocks other functionality as well.

What's interesting is I built this computer about 18 months ago and everything was fine until a month or two ago. I've changed nothing as far as IE settings, tracking protection, etc., and really forgot all about it even being there.

Thanks to all who offered suggestions. I appreciate the effort. Now I have to decide if I'm going to stick with Windows 10 or revert back to 7

SFC apparently fixed the only problem it found.
However, I dislike using just the SFC output for diagnostics, since it misses a lot of valuable information.
Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
