sikntired, your method should work, but it does not. When I right click on Ghostery, the disable option is greyed out - I cannot choose it.

I do not know anything about the program as I've never used it. If no one else is able to assist you, then I suggest you contact the vendor: Ghostery: Ask a Question
I would love to report this problem to Ghostery, the vendor, however their web site for reporting problems does not work. After inputting my problem description, & clicking on 'Post', they attempt to display a screen where I can login via my Google username/password. However this screen never appears and my browser eventually times out. I have tried this over several days with the same result.

Unfortunately, there is no way to disable Ghostery in IE. One suggestion would be to go into your blocking options section and Unselect all of the trackers.. and turn off the alert bubble in the advanced options. That way.. you are basically running Ghostery, but its not doing anything. so.. in essence.. disabled.

Sorry for the redundant answer previously. Were you informed that once installed Ghostery cannot be uninstalled ? You know, it's hard for me to believe that there is not a tool or utility that cannot undo an add-on or plug-in.
This is fascinating and warrants further research.

I really regret that I ever installed Ghostery. The app does work correctly. But I cannot uninstall it & still have my browsers work properly. The developers of Ghostery should be shot!
The best I can do to shut Ghostery is to not have it check or block any web sites. So the app just ends up being loaded and not doing anything.
I will try and contact the developers for more info & post here if I learn anything.

Thanks for the update GoshenBleeping. Since your post I have also reached out to see if anyone has a resolution. Will post back if anything promising develops.
