I have lost the ability to answer questions on this site. I cant scroll down with the mouse and there is no bar on the side. I have tried to reinstall IE9, run in compatability mode and run all updates. I have looked online for anyone that may have had this issue. It only happends on this site. Has anyone seen this or does anyone have any ideas?

I have cleared everything and reinstalled IE9. I cant just use other browsers. We have have to use IE. I have run with Firefox and that does work with no issues but i need IE working.

By cleared everything you mean the following (sorry if the instructions are overly simplistic, I'm copying and pasting something):

Reset IE: With Internet Explorer closed, open up a Run prompt (Windows key+R), type inetcpl.cpl and press enter. This will open the Internet Properties area of Control Panel (which is also the Internet Properties accessed through Internet Explorer). Click the Advanced tab at the far right, click Restore advanced settings, then click Reset... (note that the following will erase any credentials saved into the browser), check 'Delete personal settings' and click Reset one final time.

Disable/Re-enable IE: With Internet Explorer closed, open up the Add/Remove Programs section of Control Panel (Run prompt: appwiz.cpl). On the left is a link to 'Turn Windows Features On or Off'. In here you can uncheck Internet Explorer to disable the program. Then you can restart and re-enable the program, which will sometimes fix browser/plug-in issues.

Finally, reinstall IE:
(x86/32-bit) http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=13950 
(x64/64-bit) http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=23332
though in all likelihood if you don't have IE disabled in Windows Features, it will tell you you have a newer version and cannot install this one.

If those didn't work, in the Internet Properties section of IE/Control Panel, check the Security, Privacy and Content tabs for any anomalies: namely security settings turned too high, or other disabled features. The Advanced Settings list under the Advanced tab also has many settings.

If that didn't work, uninstall/reinstall your Java and/or .NET framework.

(Edit: Too late, and nevermind.)
