✔ Best Answer
Go to "Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced" and hit the Reset button to see if that helps. It will lose add-ons but they come back with usage - it will keep Favorites etc.

If at any stage IE starts working then go to "Help > About Internet Explorer" and let us have the version number.

Otherwise it could be malware so run ADWCleaner as a quick check:

(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the Scan. You then have options to remove whatever it shows under each heading in the table that appears below, although it is usually safe to run "Cleaning".

If it finds anything then please copy/paste the logs on here because even if the symptoms are cured you are likely to still have things lurking around that require further cleaning. If nothing is found also let us know.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Go to Start > All Programs > Windows Update & update it it continually until it's up to date. One of the updates will be IE11.

If all else fails the bigger gun of running Windows Restore should do it if you know when this issue came along. You just select a date before it happened. There are various ways to get to System Restore but one way is to just type it in Search. Your own stuff will not be affected.

A similar message comes up on some sites that don't want to load if you're using an 'outdated' browser. It's annnoying but not malware. If you're using IE7 or 8 that might be the reason (although I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'I have no IE working.') So, as already mentioned, if you have an older version running the update should fix the problem. If it's already updated, yeah some malware scans are in order.

Yes, we need to know if this happens on all sites or just a selected few.
