IE9 very slow to load, then most settings greyed out

IE9 very slow to load, then most settings greyed out

I have a W7 64 bit laptop running IE9. For some reason, it takes an absolute age to open and do anything with, and 'interet options', 'manage add-ons' etc. are greyed out. I've run malwarebytes which found nothing.

In safe mode, everything is fine. This is a personal home laptop,so anybody got any ideas of what to do to solve?


RE: IE9 very slow to load, then most settings greyed out

I'd updated windows, uninstalled IE9 and re-installed, but hadn't thought to check the Java. Uninstalled that (there were more than one version) and re-installed just the most up to date one, and problem disappeared.

Many thanks for your steer.
