Internet Explorer 11 will only open if I right click and then select Run As Administrator. If I don't do this, the window opens, then closes straight away without doing anything. Links in Incredimail will not open in it either . Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox work fine (and with the Incredimail links). I have not added any programs recently. I have tried a clean boot, I have disabled all the add ons, I have checked/unchecked Enable Enhanced Protected Mode, I have made Google Chrome the default browser, then changed back to IE11, I have run Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Super Anti Spyware, Windows Defender and CCleaner, checked for Windows updates...all to no avail. Tried a system restore as well, but no joy.
I am not able to load any pages using Firefox or Internet explorer. I have tried resetting my windsock and itp and it still won't work. I've also tried deleting any 3rd party firewalls I had but that didn't work either. I just got this laptop a week ago too so ya.
I'm running Windows 8.1. and recently I tried to launch Internet Explorer (11) from the start menu. It launched Firefox. I ran a search from the start menu for Internet Explorer found it and clicked. Again Firefox opened instead of IE. I clicked on an icon on my desktop set up to open a website in IE regardless of browser preferences. It opened Firefox and went to the homepage I have set in Firefox not to the URL I had set.
Opening IE by browsing to to C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe. workes just fine. Creating a desktop shortcut directly to the exe works fine. I played around with the associated programs for internet and even with everything defaulting to IE it would still open Firefox when clicking on the IE Tile on the start menu. I uninstalled/reinstalled IE11 with no change.
So I then uninstalled Firefox. Now clicking on the start icon for IE it brings up a box asking me something about an exe with a checkbox (can't remember exactly) and below that Internet explorer or I can choose other down below. If I chose IE it brought up another window asking what I wanted to do with iexplore.exe. Save/ Save As / Save and Run. None of the options opened IE. IE at this point still runs by going directly to the exe in Program Files.
Logged off as that user and logged back on as a different user and ie works just fine from that profile.
I'm guessing something in my registry is hosed, how I can repair this?
I got a HP Envy m6 Sleekbook laptop about three months ago. I installed Firefox and Chrome right away, although I used Firefox almost exclusively.
After about a month, Firefox just stopped working. I would click the icon, and it would light up (and the blue circle would appear over the cursor) as if it was about to open, but after a few seconds it stopped loading and the icon went back to normal, as if I had never clicked it. It just kind of... gave up. I restarted the computer and tried opening it from a different shortcut, and then directly from the file, but the problem persisted.
I tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox twice, but it didn't solve the issue. Finally, I abandoned Firefox and switched to using Chrome.
Now, after using Chrome without a hitch for almost two months, Chrome has spontaneously started exactly the same behavior- BUT now I can open Firefox.
I'd really like to keep using Chrome, since I finally had it set up the way I like (I have quite a few bookmarks and quirky little preferences).
(I don't use IE a lot ) I run a completely updated Windows 8.1 (home?) edition operating system so the browser I take it should be fully updated already. I have tried opening it directly from the local directory for it and also running as an administrator and neither would make it open.
There is no error message and there is no direct indication in the processes currently running under task manager that shows that it has booted up and is just not responding.
I thought maybe I could uninstall it but... then I look under program and features and I didn't see any relative program to uninstall for it. I remember a few years back uninstalling like version six or seven under a xp operating machine but that was ages ago.
So basically, IE11, independent of what the settings for Windows 8.1 is, will ALWAYS have autocorrect on and there's no easy way to disable it. I actually even encountered an official bug report were an MS employee closed it stating that "this is by design for now".
Without further ado, spell-checking is controlled by C:WindowsSystem32MsSpellCheckingFacility.dll. You'll want to rename this to something, say MsSpellCheckingFacility(2).dll, to disable this.
For those not technically inclined, note that this is a system file and it may cause some problems. Specifically, if you want Windows 8 to spell check for you but not IE11. You'll also need to take ownership of said file if you want to rename it. See Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8.
I want to re-install Internet Explorer into my Win 8 pro. I am using a Toshiba Laptop Satellite. I have tried to download and install other version of Win 8 pro, but I receive an error message saying that Internet Explorer is already installed in my system. However, I have tried searching for it, and I can't find it anywhere.
Where is Internet Explorer installed in my Win 8 Pro edition, if I have deleted all of it from my OS?
Also, how to re-install Internet Explorer so that I can use it again.
I have tried to set it as a default browser, but this method does not work.
After upgrading my OS to Win 8.1 Pro, (upgraded from 8.0) when using Explorer it keeps locking up and hangs the entire machine - the mouse freezes and the entire thing locks up, the only way to recover is to reboot the PC.
Looking at it, it looks like it might be caused by pop ups from the page I am viewing at the time - If I use IE it locks up on the initial page, if I switch to Chrome the point where IE locks up is the same point that Chrome opens a second window within the main window.
I cannot access anything, cannot get task manager or switch programs, nothing - I have to power off and restart.
I have been always a Microsoft person. But I have tried any and all fixes to try and get internet explorer to stop coming up with internet explorer has stopped working will search for a problem.
I as of today have disabled it and are using another browser that does not have this bug in it. I am having no trouble with the browser I am using, and it does not stop working like ie 11. I do not think you should have to go threw all hoops and loops to get this to work correctly. Microsoft should come up with something that works correctly all the time and you do not have to check add ins, disable other items or what not.
My IE was working properly yesterday, then all of a sudden I hit refresh and there's no sidebar. Not in 32/64 bit, not in incognito mode, gone on both the metro and desktop versions. It's gotten quite frustrating now as I am unable to have any kind of interaction with chat, there's just nothing there.
Unfortunately, Internet Explorer 11 does not display Citrix Access Gateway log in window. Ive tried to change some of the security in the settings but nothings working. Also tried to install IE 10 but it wont install, saying its already installed.
Can we actually use IE10 on Win 8? Not sure why it says its there when all I see is IE11.
Any easy way to copy URL links in Internet Explorer? In Chrome I just right click on a picture like in Farmville and I get the option to copy LINK URL or IMAGE URL. Can you do that in IE too? Chrome is my favorite but I've been having trouble with it in Farmville.
I have 8.1 with IE11 which will not run or open. In desktop mode the icon lights up for about 3 seconds, no window ever shows up and then the icon goes back to normal. In metro mode it spins and maximizes on the screen but then goes away before anything else happens. I've tried several things to get this fixed including...
netsh winsock reset at DOSremoving IE11 and adding back via Turning on or off Windows features in "Programs and Features"Removing any and all AV or Firewall software.Applying all Windows updatesResetting IE11 using its own reset button in "Internet Options"
Other browsers such as Chrome seem to work fine. I can ping by IP and name so I don't think its IP stack related.
When I click onto the Internet Explorer tile on my Windows 8.1 Start screen Windows switches to the Desktop and opens Internet Explorer there as a Desktop application.
Can it really be possible that the Internet Explorer 11 is not a Metro application? Not that I am especially hot about the Start screen with all its tiles but it makes me wonder why the Internet Explorer - in my opinion the most important application for most "normal" Windows users - is not opening as a Metro application.
Is or is not the Internet Explorer a Metro application? If it is, how can I use it as such one?
I seem to recall that when you change the proxy settings for Internet Explorer, it's not just IE you are changing. IEs proxy settings are somehow the proxy settings for other apps and the OS as well. What connections are affected if I add a proxy in IE?
My system got a virus/browser hijacker called qone8.com. McAfee did not detect it at all, removing it was a pain. One artifact that remains i the manage add-ons window pops up every time ie starts. I cannot find anything to fix this behavior. I have looked in the registry and found nothing. I would also like to find out how to completely remove unwanted entries in the manage add-ons windows. there should be a way to do this. I keep hearing of procedures to do this and all the options mentioned are always greyed out or never work. Hey Microsoft STOP GREYING OUT NEEDED FUNCTIONS!!! Image uploaded show how ie starts every time.
I want to use Internet Explorer in metro mode, but whenever I set Chrome as my default browser, this causes IE to only open in desktop mode ? Why can I only have use IE in metro mode if it is the default browser ?
