Win 7 update to IE 11 cannot access Google RRS feed

  • Question

  • Win 7 machine, updated IE10 to IE 11 and now cannot access Google. Can only get to Google via actual IP address.

    Have done the following:

    Cleared IPconfig

    Flushed DNS

    Checked for malware and virus

    Started IE in no add in mode

    Check that compatibility and ms lists were not checked

    Checked host file

    Uninstalled and reinstalled IE 11

    F12 mode changed from document to IE 10, but does not maintain setting or work

    Remember, all is fine under IE10.

    Thoughts please?

  • I am currently having the same/similar issue.  Windows 7 with IE 11 will not go to google.  IE 11 will not go to any address that is https such as google and yahoo. (both redirect to https).

    This issue began with KB2925418 and continued with KB2929437 which replaced the previous update.  There are several ways i have found to deal with this:

    1.  Turn off Protected mode on the internet zone in IE11

    2.  Go to Internet Options->Advanced Tab->scroll down to Security and uncheck "Warn if changed between secure and not secure mode"

    Both of these options will allow you to get to google and other https sites.  I have tested that if the above updates are uninstalled then the issue is not present.

    Hope this helps.
