IE 11 doesn't like Win10 update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ever since I performed the Win10 Pro 64bit update/upgrade (which I didn't want to do in the first place but Microsoft doesn't really give you any choice), I've been having all kinds of trouble with Internet Explorer 11...

    ie: freezing, no video streaming, "tab" function, can no longer open certain sites, etc., etc.

    On my other PC with Win7 Pro 64bit, I'm also getting a few similar issues but nothing like the Win10 one.

    Has Microsoft done something to sabotage Internet Explorer 11 in their lust to force the use of Edge or is there an actual solution to its many new problems?

  • Hi Doug,

    No... some other third party software you had installed on the previous OS/IE version is now not compatible with IE11.

    try these settings...

    from IE select Tools>Compatibility view settings

    remove any websites from your personal list.

    check "Include updated website lists from MS".

    from Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab,

    check "Use Software rendering instead of GPU rendering".

    uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions".

    check "Enable automatic crash recovery".

    from Tools>Internet Options>Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default".

    If you are using a work computer, contact your system administrators/help desk... they may have restrictions on how you can configure your IE settings.

    You can uninstall unwanted IE addons from Start>Control Panel>Programs and features.

    If you are using a third-party security program that has IE addons (toolbars) check with the vendor for updates for their software...

    winkey+s>Troubleshoot will open up the Windows 10 troubleshooter where you can select specialist diagnostic tools for your connections/internet problems.

    winkey+s>Defender will open up Windows Defender, you may like to run a Scan of your computer. It will detect and fix/remove any known malware that infects IE.
