Every time I open my internet explorer it is slow.  When it finally opens, it stop before it displays any part of the page except the blank window itself.  Three windows open, one on tops the other.  I cannot close the windows.  Even if I use Windows Task Manager, i cannot close the windows.   I have to reboot the system to make the Internet Explorer shutdown.  It happens every time I start the internet explorer.  

I have run Spybot, Malwarebytes, AVG virus stuff.  Nothing stops the problem.. I wonder if anybody knows of this problem and a p ossible solutions.
