First step would be to Reset IE.
Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced > hit Reset button.
You will lose IE customizations but add-ons will come rolling back with time.
If the above doesn't work uninstall Chrome. If this works it will probably stay working when you install Chrome again.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
