    lol I was guessing that one of them was the problem here, since they often do things of this nature. Google: "Norton IE Freeze" to see what I mean.

    This script will re-register all dll's located in System32 & SysWow64 folders. In certain situations it's a quick way resolve common problems. If you would like to view it's contents simply right click the file and choose edit.

    Otherwise, it requires you run the script as an Administrator.

    The next step will essentially perform a repair on IE. This action will not remove any saved bookmarks.

    Open Control Panel > Select Uninstall a Program > Select Turn Windows features on or off > Uncheck Internet Explorer 11 > Click OK.

    -Restart-

    Open Control Panel > Select Uninstall a Program > Select Turn Windows features on or off > Check Internet Explorer 11 > Click OK.

    -Restart-

    If this doesn't fix your issue we will need to look a little deeper into other possible causes.

    Hi

    I've done that and will report in a couple of days if there are no problems, sooner if there are.

    BTW, I did not run the batch file you provided, I assumed it was not required.

    Cheers
