All of a sudden my Internet Explorer back button won't work

All of a sudden my Internet Explorer back button won't work properly after a Google search.
As shown in the screenshots 01) I go to Google search and type Pizza. 02) I search Pizza and click the first result. 03) Then I click the back button and get this empty page.

It only happens from search If I use a shortcut or favorite to enter a site the back button works fine
I have tried refreshing the page, disabling add ons, resetting IE to defaults, I even tried a System Restore.
Malwarebytes finds nothing. It does not happen in Chrome. Appreciate any help.



Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
Internet Explorer 11
Everything is up to date.
