Everything worked last night, tonight I can't access my email . Any ideas what the reason is ?

Done the refresh...no change. So clicked onto 'learn more'

2. Turn on JavaScript in Chrome

If you’re using a supported browser and still can’t sign in, you might need to turn on JavaScript.


A supported browser ? I use Internet Explorer and always have done ! I wonder if Google (my email provider) is wanting me to change to Chrome, but to block my emails is a bit confusing .

What do I do ?

Did you try turning it off and on again?
Sorry gran, couldn't resist. I'm sure DD will help.
Chinese was good but as usual, way to much.

If you have malwarebytes then run it.

Check the add-ons (tools - manage add-ons) and see if you have anything unusual in there.

I only use IE for one purpose (cctv) but I have (approx names) ....

Toolbars & extensions:-
Research - enabled
Java SSV Helper - enabled
Java SSV 2 helper - enabled

Search Providers:-

The easiest thing is to try a different browser, see if it lets you access your email.

Personally IE would be the last browser I would use. If you have to use the built in one, I would try Edge.

Thanks everyone . That's a handy number to have linkle.

Well, I followed DD's instructions and there was nothing different. I followed the instructions from internet as how to go through the motions and 'enable' scripting. Everything was as it should be there too. So no changes could be made.
Then with a search I picked up this below, so I;m assuming that because Microsoft did an update the previous day this has come into play.
Anyway, as rhoobarb suggests, I have now changed browser and it seems to be ok, but more annoying when things change. Why can't they leave us old buggers alone eh?

https://www.whatismybrowser.com/guides/the-latest-version/internet-explorer

Is Internet Explorer still supported?

Starting January 12, 2016, Microsoft stopped supporting all versions of Internet Explorer except the latest version: version 11.

Microsoft are keen to dump IE, they don't want to support two browsers. But IE 11 is still supported, the last update was ten days ago, they have used the sneaky incompatibility changes in the past to deter people from products they want to dump.

Something that is worth checking is whether Windows Update updates all Microsoft products, by default I used to find this switched off.

Start - Settings - Update & Security - [Windows Update]Advanced Options - Receive updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows

I can't think of any reason to have this switched off.

I don't think I have a virus. At least I hope not. Having checked the symptoms of one, the only thing that compares is sometimes being slow, but I think that can happen anyway.

I'm using Firefox as a browser now, that should be ok, but seems slower to connect than IE.
