Additional information:

Standard troubleshooting:

  1. Go into Control Panel, and choose "Internet Options".
  2. Switch to the Advanced tab.
  3. Click the Reset Internet Explorer Settings button.
  4. Click Reset to confirm the operation.
  5. Click Close when the resetting process finished.
  6. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions.
  7. Click Apply, click OK.

If the situation has improved, try returning third-party browser extensions.
