IE wont restore pages

IE 11 on a windows 10 64bit laptop has suddenly given this error " Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this site. It appears the website continues to have a problem"  It happens to every website after 3-5 sec. Google works fine. I have tried a lot of different things and looking for suggestions.  (Tried disabling all add-ins, Updating java, resetting IE). If i run IE in admin the issue does not appear as much.

Did you try System Restore ?

Sounds like you have a user policy blocking caching or cookies in a certain internet zone. Can you share your IE internet zone settings?

But this is the only machine showing these symptoms. There are far more heavy users without this issue. Why would it be only one if it was a policy setting?  just curious

Perhaps its outside of the scope of the GPO?
Local security policies used as a workaround for another issue?
Corrupt IE 11?  Have you run a sfcscan?
Personal user settings for Ticketmaster?

I have not sfc /scannow command, will try that in the morning. Its every website not just ticketmaster, that was just an example of what i am seeing. As far as local policies users do not have permission to access those settings.

I did not do a system restore. Would like to figure out what the root cause. System restore is my last ditch effort
Why have you included the Java TA in your question?
RaminTechnical AdvisorCommented:
Open Internet Explorer >> Internet Options >> Advanced.
Under Accelerated Graphics (first Item) click on the checkbox next to Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering. Ensuring that it is checked, click on OK. Close Internet options. Restart IE and test.

Also scanning your PC with your AV and AdwCleaner is a good idea.
Try with a different local user profile (test user) on this machine. That is always the 1st step of diagnosing application problems.
