    This is all I've found that sounds similar to your problem.

    Try to repair IE:

    Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.
    On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Microsoft Internet Explorer , click Add/Remove, click Repair the current installation of Internet Explorer, and then click OK.

    If that fails, then Backup the registry first.

    Backing up the Windows registry

    Then try the below.

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WebCheck
    and check to see if you have these two *String* keys and they are set to "auto":

    Note: If they are set to "Yes"

    Change them to:
