Welcome, several things to try. Go to tools, internet options, advnced, reset.

does not work

Run disc clean, delete cookies, delete temporary files, by goint to tools, internet options, browsing history.

Download and try new browser. Chrome or FireFox would be nice choices.

Scan with anti virus and download and run malwarebytes. Download and Run ccleaner.

Just so I truly understand the problem.

You are able to go to the site, but the view is not correct?

If that is the problem, can you right click on desktop, then go to resolution, and adjust it.
