Greetings, TedHagstrom!

Check you IE Security settings. With IE open, go to Tools > Options > Security. Make sure the slider is at Medium.

Clean your cache. Delete all temporary internet files and cookies.

There may be programs running in the background interfering with the operation of Internet Explorer. If you have Norton programs running in the background, temporarily turn them off, including anti-virus, win doctor, recycle bin protect, and clean sweep. Does this fix the problem?

Turn off any firewall or ad-blocker.


Best wishes, war1
