Every web page keeps asking me what I want to do with .htm ? Save as? Open Internet Explorer 11 RRS feed

  • Question

  • when I open any website on Internet Explorer 11 I get a pop up asking me if I want to save the file or open it? If I click open then a privacy box appears.

    This is probably one of the most annoying issues I've seen so far..  Is there a fix for this?

    remove local and roaming profiles.

    get them to re set up roaming / local profile.

    problem resolved.

    Must be something that breaks the profile when upgrading from 8 to 8.1

  • Hi,

    Have you run IE 11 with No Add-on mode? Please reset Internet Explorer settings and check if this issue still occurs.

    If this issue still persists, it should be caused by what IE 11 cannot parse HTML file. So i suggest you try to repair those corrupt dll files for IE 11.
    Please run the following commands with elevated privilege one by one:

    regsvr32 shell32.dll
    regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
    regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
    regsvr32 urlmon.dll
    regsvr32 msjava.dll
    regsvr32 browseui.dll
    regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
    regsvr32 mshtml.dll

    If there is any dll file failing to register, it indicates this dll is corrupt.

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files
