,.................Prior to installing the updates.............

Is one of those updates an upgrade to Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 ?

Just to be certain......
1. Are you using IE11 or IE10.
If IE11, how long ago ?

2. Go to Windows Updates, click View Updates history, is IE11 installed recently ?

ah just fixed it. Updated my graphic's AMD drivers. Don't seem to know how that connects with the issue, but it works. Thanks for the help anyways though

Great you got it fixed - and you're not the first one to not understand the connections. "IT works in mysterious ways".
