  • Hi,

    Firstly, I suggest to disable all add-ons then check again.

    In fact, personally speaking, I think put IE’s shortcut on desktop is enough, just configure Home page in Internet Options, clicking IE shortcut will open home page in default.

    Besides, you could type ie in search box to open IE, if browser opened quickly by this way, it indicates that IE itself is healthy, just shortcut has trouble, rebuild a shortcut may fix issue.

  • Thank you , I couldn't find much details as well.

    Just noticed something , does IE policies take longer to apply (like we set Homepage , sec zone , etc using Group Policies and what i have noticed when a new user launches IE for the first time on a new computer they do not get these policies immediately .. Eventually possibly after and hour or so and subsequent logins work fine.

    I feel IE polices apply slowly and not during the first logon -- any comments.
