Sorry for the long lapse, wife had major surgery and it's been busy around here. Tried to disable, but have a red circle with line through it on toolbars and extentions and the cussor keeps spinning. Running REAL slow.

Have you done step 3;

 

1. Open Internet Explorer and click on the Tools button, and then tap or click Manage add-ons.

2. Disable all the add-ons.

3. Enable each add-on one by one and check the performance of Internet Explorer.

4. Once you find the add-on that is creating the problem, disable it in the Manage Add-Ons window.

Tried #3. Shock wave active x seemed to be the culprit.  Disabling helped some, but still slower than it was. Tried to do system restore, but it wouldn't work.

Looks like you have a problem within Windows;

 

Download then run the Windows All in One Repair (free)  from here, disregard the malware guidance but follow the other steps to the letter and in particular ensuring that you first create a new restore point and perform a proper Windows clean boot before running the repair, details for the clean boot here.
