IE9 not loading webpages

IE was working fine. Suddenly, a domain user complained of IE not loading web pages. Google Chrome and all other internet dependent services worked fine on the same machine. Reset all IE settings, ran IE without ad-ons, troubleshooted services and startup apps/services using msconfig, scanned for malware/virus, uninstall/resinstall IE9 and I recreated the profile. still get the same issue. Local administrator account doesnt have any issue with IE9.

Then, the next day, another domain user complained of the same issue. Same testing, same results. Another user complained, the next day and another user the day after that. A system restore fixed the problem for 2 users; however, that is not an option for the other 2 users and it isnt really a resolution.

Maybe group policies but i dont see how it would affect 4 people, not everyone and not at once. Any ideas or tips on why IE9 does not load would be appreciated.

dguillen--
Perhaps of help

If no help, you seem to have narrowed the problem to some difference between the two machines that were fixed with System Restore and the two that were not.  Can you look further into that?

If you do not want to spend a lot of time on this run a Repair Install on the two machines that still have the problem.

Why do you feel System Restore is not a resolution?  As long as you do not revert to conditions after the date of the System Restore used successfully, things would seem fixed.

i cannot do a sysrestore on the other machines because they dont have any restore points available from before the issue started.

i dont find the sysrestore as a viable resolution becuase i still dont know what caused the problem nor what fixed it.

i have already recreated the profile and ran the MS Fix it tools. Neither worked. Win7 repair would be next but i want to find the root of the issue.

dguillen--I am afraid the ball is in your court to find the root cause.

Do not trust IE when you choose to disable all ad-ons or reset to defaults. do it manually or check it. it will save you a headache.
