IE opens frozen RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I open IE-11 on my Windows 10 computer it appears to open normally, but whenever I click on something all I get it the error chime. If I go to the Start menu and run IE in admin mode it works OK.

  • Hi USAF,

    When a web browser starts it will use the homepage settings of the users' account to launch the homepage url. To change your homepage settings on your user account go Start>Control Panel>Internet Options>General tab,

    Generally, to quickly correct IE browser problems, go

    Start>Control Panel>Internet Options>Advanced tab, click the "Reset" button.... carefully review your reset options (for example you may not want to delete your internet favorites or surfing history).

    If you still have problems after applying the above fixes... then probably you are seeing the effects of a malware infection...

    first go Start menu>Startup and delete any entries in there...... a common hijack for malware is to place an internet shortcut in the users' Startup folder... links in that folder are run when the computer is first started.


    Start>Control Panel>Windows Defender.... download any pending updates first, then scan your computer to identify and remove any known malware.

  • I unplugged my computer last night. This morning I plugged it back in and IE now appears to be working correctly.

  • Hi AirForce9797,

    It’s a method to unplug and reboot again. Meanwhile we could try reset the IE settings.


    Then we could troubleshoot the issue in no add-on mode.


    Hope it will be helpful to you
