Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, Windows Features and remove (disable) IE. Restart. You must. Go back, enable IE and restart again. You must.

Now open Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced and Reset IE. Top Section Only.

Now open IE, Add-ons and remove unnecessary (or all) add-ons.

Now restart again and test.
WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
I'm not quite clear on the remove part.  If I remove IE I have to reinstall don't I?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
No. Remove in Windows Features just disables it. Restart runs Windows without IE . Enable just puts it back
10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
OK Just making sure. I'll try
WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
OK did all that and it didn't change a thing...
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Thanks for the update.   Try 2 things now:

1. Make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test IE.  Does the new profile work?

2. Try a Windows 7 Repair Install. For this you need the Windows 7 DVD or a working recovery partition.

The second solution will not fix the first issue, however,

Check if your PC is infected:
Scan your PC with RKill and  AdwCleaner, and when finished Uninstall them.

Try to uninstall suspicious programs and check the status.

How to reset Internet Explorer settings:

There is a hotfix available from Microsoft for the ole32.dll crash.
WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
So far nothing is working.  I'm trying the hotfix  - after that it's either a system restore or re-format and start over.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Try the Repair Install and it that does not work, then yes, start all over.
WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
Hotfix failed too.  Next step is repair or restore. Thanks.

2017-11 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4048957)

these maybe causing my issue.  I just took it off said machine however user will not be in till 1
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Possible. Try the rollup updates and see.
WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
Tried everything including a repair.  Re-doing the machine
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
That is what you need to do at this point.
WellingtonISAuthor Commented:
Actually we had this issue on another machine and also tried a bunch of things.  however, this time uninstalling IE and reinstalling it worked.  But we still have no idea what's causing this issue.
