Hello techtitan,

If your IE9 works fine in no add-ons mode as posted above, then one of the add-ons you installed is causing the problems.

You could test this by disabling add-ons one by one and run IE9 in normal mode until you no longer have this issue to find the culprit, then enable the add-ons that were not the cause again.
Internet Explorer - Enable or Disable Toolbars and Extensions Add-ons
Hope this helps, :)
