IE11 hangs on "Choose your homepage and search settings", windows7 system RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just had a windows update. After that when I open IE11, the "Choose your homepage and search seetings" window pops up and hangs. The "Done" button is greyed and nothing happens when click it. And I can't close the window. If I click the main window, it "din" to the hanging window. Thought about uninstall IE and reinstall it, but it is not listed in programs to uninstall. I had to use "task manager" to kill it.

  • Mine did the same. The last update I had to IE 11 on my machine was on august 10, 2016 it was KB3175443.

    I uninstalled the update.

    After re-booting the computer the annoying popup was gone.

    This is not a long term fix, but will let you get past the problem until a longer term solution is available.

  • Simple solution.

    Uninstall KB3175443.  Reboot to get internet access. Download Chrome.

    Stop using IE

  • I found the answer here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie11-windows_7/choose-your-homepage-and-search-settings/2966bcb3-3ddb-4a26-8c51-07b5aa40e4ef?page=1&auth=1

    Essentially, just need to create the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_EUPP_GLOBAL_FORCE_DISABLE

    And then create a DWORD (32-bit) value within that key called "iexplore.exe"

    And then set the value of that DWORD to 1

    It worked for me, and lots of other people on the thread linked above!

  • So here’s what worked for me, Shutdown IE if you cannot shut it down, open Task Manager-> select iexplorer-> click End Task on all instances. Control Panel -> Internet Options 1. Delete Browsing History 2. Browsing History click Delete and check all boxes 3. click Delete This resolved it for me, i was unable to find the update mentioned in other reply’s, and I don’t recommend messing with the registry unless you know what you are doing, it can really mess everything up. Hope this works for others.
