Hi,

Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - IE with no Addons - does this work better?

IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - click Restore then click Reset - Apply / OK

IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security Tab -  click reset all zones to default - Apply / OK

Close and restart IE - set Search provider as you wish.

Tools - Manage Add-ons - Search Providers - Select the Search Provider you want by clicking on one
you can Move it UP or DOWN the list - Set the one you want as the Default (Usually the 1st choice)
and you can REMOVE any you do not want on list. Then on LOWER LEFT check -> Prevent programs
from suggesting changes to my default search provider.

You could also do this from another computer to correct your list.

================================================

Run through these to find the cause if needed :

Start - All Programs - Accessores - System Tools - IE with no Addons - does this work better?

IE - Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - click Restore then click Reset - Apply / OK

IE - Tools - Internet Options - Security Tab -  click reset all zones to default - Apply / OK

Close and restart IE and/or IE with no addons

any better?

IE - Tools - Manage Addons (for sure disable SSV2 if it is there, this is no longer needed but Java still installs it
and it causes issues - you ever update Java go back in and disable it again.) Look for other possible problems.

Windows Defender - Tools - Software Explorer - look for issues with programs that do not look right. Permitted
are usually OK and "not permitted" are not always bad. If in doubt about a program ask about it here.

And refresh the TCP/IP stack :

Type the following commands (or copy and paste one at a time), each followed by pressing enter.

ipconfig /flushdns

nbtstat -R

nbtstat -RR

netsh int reset all

netsh int ip reset

netsh winsock reset

REBOOT

That resets your TCP/IP stack

Hope this helps.
