  • Hi,


    Since this issue occurred after installing the antivirus software (AVIRA), I suggest you temporarily uninstall it to check the result.

    Also, you can perform a system restore to test the issue. If the issue still persists, you can try the following steps:


    Reset IE


    Note: the following steps will disable installed add-ons and reset IE to default settings. We need to re-enable the add-ons after resetting


    1. Click the Start Button, type "inetcpl.cpl" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.

    2. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.

    3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.

    4. When it finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK twice.


    You can also try Clean Boot mode.

    Hope this helps
