Windows 7: Further on IE not working- Help -ideas please?

16 Aug 2012   #1

Further on IE not working- Help -ideas please?

I posted that IE 9 (and Firefox) not working properly. I now find that Google chrome is working, so I researched this problem. None relate to my specific problem and nothing new in 2012. I have been using win 7 with IE9 for 12 months so no problems after installing and no error messages. It just stopped working one day. I cant do a systems repair because I received 18 updates yesterday. I have 32 bit Win 7 Professional.

What I have tried.
emptied cache.
disabled most add ons that I recognised.
Downloaded a fix and this sent computer into a spin.
looked for IE updates in case they had not automatically updated.
Did a virus scan with trend. Not a full one.
Looked at settings but dont really know what I am looking for.
checked maintainance tasks.
Did a restart after all this and still not working.

I dont want to use Google chrome as my IE set up as I want it and password program wont work in it. This is a must for me. Also a reinstall is not an option as I will lose everything. I could do a restore and reinstalll updates. Any other suggestions lease/ Been at this for hours..

I have been told to defrag but I have loads of space and thought this was not recommended now.
Your help will be appreciated.
