Hello TheNewestCullen: :)

Please be aware Internet Explorer 9 is meant for Windows Vista and upwards. Are you using 32 or 64-bit operating system, you could download full off-line installer and try installing over the existing one to check if it fixes problem

Try using Windows' "System Restore" to roll Windows back to a previous state when your computer was functioning correctly:
