Internet Explorer will not open properly

My IE9 suddenly stopped displaying the Home Page, unless I click on the "Home" icon. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, thinking some part of it had become corrupted, but I have the same problem. Not that I really need Internet Explorer. I have both Mozilla Firefox and Avant browsers that I use most of the time.

IE9 does work. It just displays the error message "Internet Explorer is currently running without add-ons" when you start it. I have my Home Page set to Encrypted Google, which comes up after I click on the Home icon.

How can it be reset to bring up the Home Page on the first attempt to open it?

That is not so much an error message as a notification message. Like when you start Private Browsing. It does not go to the home page but rather opens up a page that tells you that you are running in that mode. Look in Options and make sure you don't have a setting setup for the default mode to be safe mode (which starts with no add-ons). That is usually used for testing issues.

OK, thanks a lot. I think it was in protected mode.
