Internet Explorer 11 flashes for 2 AD users just on one site. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I am struggling to solve the problem encountered by two active directory users when the browser was upgraded to IE11 : when they go one specific page of the IE windows starts flashing.

    Those two users have the problem regarless of the computer they are logged on from.

    IE was uninstalled/reinstalled, the settings reset.

    I would like to know if any one has an idea on where to look on the infrastructure side, as this is cleary not a client issue.

    Many thanks in advance for your suggestiong and time.

    Alex

  • Hi Hoge,

     Start>Run>iexplore.exe -extoff [url]

    a flashing window thumb in the taskbar indicates an alert prompt of some kind.....

    what happens when you select the flashing tab from the tasks bar?

    there were recent security updates that prevent a particularly nasty exploit, that would result in a flashing tab, but when focused the malware alert statement is suppressed and the user does not see the underlying malware prompt.

    A similar exploit is also used on malicious or hacked websites.... If possible please include the full address of any websites you are having problems with your questions.

  • Hi,

     

    Based on your description, I noticed that when they go one specific page of the IE windows starts flashing.

    I want to confirm that if other pages also have the same problem?

    Have you tried to use another account to test it? If not, please try it.

     

    You mentioned that those two users have the problem regardless of the computer they are logged on from. It seems that there is something wrong with the domain user profile.

    Please follow the steps to fix the domain profile. If you don’t have sufficient  permission, please ask Administrator for help.

     

    1.Open Microsoft Management Console by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, typing mmc into the search box, and then pressing Enter.‌ Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

     

    2.In the left pane of Microsoft Management Console, click Local Users and Groups.

     

    If you don't see Local Users and Groups

    If you don't see Local Users and Groups, it's probably because that snap-in hasn't been added to Microsoft Management Console. Follow these steps to install it:

     

    a.In Microsoft Management Console, click the File menu, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.

    b.Click Local Users and Groups, and then click Add.

    c.Click Local computer, click Finish, and then click OK.

     

    3.Click the Users folder.

     

    4.Click the Action menu, and then click New User.

     

    5.Type the appropriate information in the dialog box, and then click Create.

     

    6.When you are finished creating user accounts, click Close.

     

    7.Restart the PC.
