Windows 7, IE 9 goes into a continuous loop

IE goes into conitnuous loop with messages about detecting a problem, but cannot even access the tools icon during this loop (grayed out) to try resetting IE.  Any ideas?  Chrome seems to work OK.

See if you can go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced and Reset that way. Does that work?

The fact that one browser runs and one does not suggests the possibility of a virus.

Please scan your machine with your own AV suite and then use the free trial download from Malwarebytes to scan again.

Click the 'start' orb, type in inetcpl.cpl and hit Enter.
The Reset... button is on the Advanced tab.
Reset, disable all addons and toolbars. Problem still exists?

Problem exists in safe mode with networking?

Reset did not solve the problem. There was no way to remove addons and toolbars since those options were grayed out.   We were able to bring IE up in safe mode.  Installed the option for IE10 while in safe mode.  Returned to regular mode but had the same problem.  Then decided to uninstall the IE10 update via the CP and View Installed Updates.  Although it did not appear to uninstall (was still listed), we restarted the system and IE now appears to be working OK with IE 9.

SSharma....I did not see any suggestions from you.
Great. You got it working. :-)

For future reference, click the 'start' orb, then click All Programs...
navigate to Accessories -> System Tools
There you will find a shortcut named
Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)
Thank you.  I did not know that.  Good info.
