All the checkboxes have disappeared - so I can't tick anything, and I can't change any of the settings as they seem to be blocked. The only thing that comes up when I click on each setting is a: "What's this?"

And I don't remember what I was doing when the boxes disappeared. I uninstalled some recent new programs but nothing changed........

Would it help if I restored the defaults?

Thank you!

Hello dragon_ette and welcome to BC.

What anti virus program do you use? Does it update? Do you have a firewall? What other scanning programs do you have?

Close all browser windows and clear your Temporary Internet Files and Offline Content by accessing Internet Options through the Control Panel. Sometimes that works. Restoring the Defaults is a good idea.

I don't use Norton but I'm fairly sure that it has locked your settings. What version are you using and why do you want to change your options?
