System Settings Greyed Out

Hello All,

We have been working with Alteryx Designer for a few months now and we were never able to interact with the system settings.  I would open it, everything was greyed out, clicking next, back, and cancel did nothing, but was only able to close the window by using X.  Support suggested many different things to try, but we never got it to work (Uninstall and Disable other antivirus, disable firewall, run Alteryx as Admin, trying a different conf.js file, using process monitor to log the events, open public_html file in IE, and verify scripting was enabled in IE). 


I worked with our IT department, and after looking if JavaScript was enabled in IE (using the following link: Here ), and it said it was not, but was enabled in Firefox and Chrome, we did some more digging and testing.  We uninstalled McAfee from my computer and it solved it.  I am now able to use the system settings, and it shows that JavaScript is enabled in IE.  Hopefully this helps others if they encounter the same issue and I have attached a before and after image!
