    For fixing this issue,you should create another user account(admin) and login into it. Now open command prompt by pressing "Windows key+R",type "regedit" and hit the enter button on your keyboard. Now navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Internet Settings".Then right click>>export to a publich folder or root dir.After that, switch back to your original account and remove the above key. Finally run the exported .reg.It should fix your issue. However if it failed,try clean boot.It removes problem which occurs as a result of software conflicts.For doing the same,follow the below given procedure:
    1. Click on "Start" button and type "msconfig" in the search box and hit enter button on keyboard.It can ask for Administrator password so don't hesitate to provide the same. Now a different windows will appear before you.
    2. Click on "General Tab" and then on "Selective Startup". Now uncheck the "Load Startup Items" check box.
    3. After that click on "Services" tab and check the check box which has the option "Hide All Microsoft Services". Once checked that option, click on "Disable All" button and click on "Ok" button. After completing all the above mentioned steps, restart your computer to reflect these changes.
