My Internet Explorer 9 has gone bandy!

I'm writing this via Firefox - some of you will say 'that tells me everything I need to know' .

OK then, here's what happened:

I run Windows7 64-bit (I'm pretty sure). Yesterday I loaded up AVG 2013 Free Antivirus (I used AVG 2012 Free Antivirus successfully last year, along with Spybot). Along with this came a one-day freebie 'AVG Clean-up'. It identified a couple of things in my 'registrys', fragmentation, etc. I set it to work, automatically cleaning them up.

Now my Internet Explorer 9 is buggered, and I think it's a bit too much of a coincidence. It will load up my homepage of Google but then if I do a search it's incredibly slow and normally won't even load up the page of what I'm searching for. In short, it's kyboshed to ****.

Has the registry been buggered up (whatever that means)?

I could have sworn Internet Explorer used to appear separately in the programs list, now it doesn't.

I looked at uninstalling/reinstalling it but the Microsoft website say you just download and install it and it goes on top of the existing. But if I try I keep being told the version I have is up to date.

Can anyone hazard a guess as to what's happened please?

Try creating a new user account and login to W7 with that. You will probably find IE9 works. Ball ache to transfer everything to new user mind.
I'd just use Firefox or Chrome.

There might be a bit of a theme emerging here.

I updated my McAfee last week & IE has been acting up ever since. Could there be something going on between the AV software & IE?

In which case, maybe a fix will emerge soon?
