Preferred Solution: browser ie11 or edge which is better

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Folks
Be extra careful currently as there is STILL a problem in security with IE11 and Edge which can allow "unscrupulous" users to hijack your browser / do other nasty things - and currently NO A/V software can protect against this.

BE VERY CAREFUL if using IE11 / EDGE until Ms applies the patch. DO NOT RELY SOLEY ON YOUR A/V SOFTWARE - this won't protect you in this case. People are often lulled into a false sense of security after installing some extra A/V software -- this actually makes them MORE likely to fall into traps than people who only have the base WD stuff installed but browse carefully. !!!

Here's the article - from BBC (and Google) so it's not from some dubious journalist writing for a magazine hoping to make a few bucks.

Bad bug found in Microsoft browsing code - BBC News

I posted this note also in the Browsers section as some people don't read this part of the Forum.

Cheers - and SAFE browsing

Question: IE11 vs. Edge

Does anyone know of a good source that explains the difference between IE11 and Edge? Pretty much all I've gathered is that Edge isn't as compatible with as many web-sites as IE11. Why the introduction of a new browser? Why isn't it more compatible?

Answer:IE11 vs. Edge

Browser Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 (Windows 10)

IE has become a failure and MS is trying to start over with a new browser, Edge. This is a ground up design of a new browser and it's looking good right now for a browser that's only about a year old. I've been using it for some time and it's been a good experience for me at least.

edge seems massively dumbed down, very bare options configuration compared to IE11.

From what I can see all of the following are missing.

No options to toggle tls 1.1 1.0 1.2 etc.
No options to toggle gpu acceleration
No options to set file cache location (I like to use ram disk)
No security zones
No tracking protection lists
No addons
No advanced cookie settings
No per domain settings
No options to adjust certificate verification
No options to adjust UTF-8 and IDN
No toggle for crash protection
No tab options

Basically edge feels like a mobile orientated app, as it uses the "modern" interface.

Is there a reason to use edge instead of IE11? aside from future proofing as I am assuming IE11 at some point will be obsoleted by Microsoft.

Answer:is it me or is ie11 better than edge?

Edge is still very early in it's development cycle.. give it time and it will get much better.

Oh and I'm using it right now to post here and I like it.. very fast and clean.

I am having problems on my laptop using things like Cortana across user accounts. The wheel spins and spins when I click on Cortana. I think the problem stems from the fact edge and IE11 cannot load outlook.com or go into things like account settings. It's only this causing the issue, all other sites work apart from these critical MS sites. I've tried changing DNS settings to alternates like google but nothing works to fix this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated? On my other desktop PC I have no issues. All language settings and packs are correctly set as UK. Am at a total loss. I tried a restore point but that was no better. I've had this issue crop up intermittently ever since getting the laptop. Sometimes it works ok but after a while the issue will re-occur without rhyme or reason. I notice under family setitngs 'Can't connect to family settings, your user data may not be upto date' sometimes comes up too.

To enable the new engine, just type ?about:flags? in IE11?s address bar, select ?Enabled? under ?Enable Experimental Web Platform Features,? and restart the browser. Enabling the "Custom User Agent" option will trick sites that nerf IE specifically into using the Spartan Edge rendering engine.

Has anyone figured a way to turn this crap off?

Yes, I know that Edge is Microsoft's "preferred" browser. No, I'm not interested. I need IE for work purposes because of legacy ActiveX components, so that annoying icon does no good.

I'm trying to get the new build ready for work on our domain, but considering all our employees heavily use IE every day, this is going to get on everybody's nerves and fast!

I tried copying the iexplore.exe from Anniversary Update (1607) to 1703 VM, and got an error about a missing ordinal in the EXE. So I'm thinking they added it that way - not seeing any settings, GPOs, or any other way to turn it off.

Well, you didn't really tell us what problems you were having with performing the import.

So, let's skip the diagnosis and jump right to an alternative approach...

You might consider using a 3rd-party application called EdgeManage to see if you have better luck with performing an import operation from Internet Explorer.

Hi there

While Silverlight is as everybody knows RUBBISH it IS a requirement for watching SKY GO on Windows. Sky GO on Android doesn't use it so It must be possible for Ms to have some other method of protecting DRM material.

So (and SKY GO is used by loads of SKY customers --particularly for Sport and Movies) as EDGE which (intentionally) doesn't support Silverlight people will have to keep IE11 for the foreseeable future - unless one wants to use CHROME - which I don't really like --YMMV on this one of course.

If Ms wants people to switch as quick as possible to EDGE they need to get current applications to work with it.

At least though SKY GO works on W10 !!.

(For those who don't know what SKY GO is - it's the service from the U.K Satellite Broadcaster SKY that people can use to stream programs on to their tablets, computers and phones - quite a good service BTW if you have SKY TV.

Good on some Rail services too in UK where trains have fast Wi-Fi available !!!

Answer:Running windows 10 AEd . confused over IE11 and EDGE

Windows 10 comes with both IE11 and Edge built in. Edge is Microsoft's recommended browser and the one where all future development will concentrate. But the business world would throw up their hand in horror if IE was removed - many bespoke company Intranet applications will only work with IE because only IE can run Microsoft ActiveX controls. Indeed Microsoft's own Update Catalog website will only work with IE for the same reason.

You have IE if you really need it but MS don't really want you to use it, so it's hidden away on an infrequently visited part of the All Apps list. It's to be found under 'Windows Accessories'. The only other place you can find it is (ironically) in Edge. Open any webpage, click on the 'three dots' icon at the top right and one of the items in the menu that appears is 'Open with Internet Explorer'. However you get to it, once running you can pin it to the taskbar.

But finding IE isn't necessarily going to help you fix Edge's video problems, the settings you need to change may be in Edge, not IE. It's not clear what you mean by 10 A.Ed. Can you type Winver in the search box next to Start and run it. To be of more help we need to know the full set of numbers shown there for the version and OS build.

What I can tell you is that for my version 1607 (OS Build 14393.187) Edge has no such problems showing videos from MSN.

Hello,

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Cheers,

Yesterday I was forced to reboot my computer as MS installed some Windows Updates. After the reboot I can no longer access google.com's main page and some other https site like my companies Citrix Storefront login page. These all worked before the forced update. There were 2 updates installed KB3142588 and KB3140768. I uninstalled the KB3142588 and rebooted and everything worked again. Later in the day again MS installed something and forced me to reboot. After the reboot, the same problem came back. Funny thing now, is that those 2 updates are no longer there and were replaced by others. One of them I could uninstall and the other I cannot. I uninstalled the one (didn't write done the KB#) and rebooted and still the same problem. It only really seems to be issues with some https sites. I can't believe that there is a problem with googles certificate.

I get a "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". The security certificate presented by this website is not secure. Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept and data you send to the server.

I cannot just accept the cert nor can I look at it like I could in Windows 7.

Hi there

What a DOGS DINNER of a mess -- SKY GO is still using Silverlight for DRM - however it's deprecated in Windows so sooner or later IE11 won't work with it. Edge of course doesn't work with it, and the non Ms browsers seem randomly to work or not work.

This is NOT an Ms problem though -- surely SKY could use similar DRM / Copyright protection to NETFLIX etc - since the ANDROID application works without any problem whatsoever they must be using something other than Silverlight.

I only suspect that SKY would rather get people to sign up to their SKY Q service -- it's fine but not very portable if you want to watch on a laptop instead of on a small tablet or smart phone.

If Ms would RETIRE Silverlight completely then SKY would be forced to fix SKY GO for their customers !!!!

Answer:SKY GO - edge, IE11 and silverlight What a dogs dinner of a mess

Silverlight is expected to have a long life-cycle:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...arch/?c2=12905

compatibility issues are always on the agenda, given that rs3 builds are going deeper into underlying code
I suspect we may see improvements further down the line, at present I am getting hints that Edge is not fully compatible yet..

- no doubt, there will be more on this subject in the coming months..

Microsoft has announced that (the embedded) Flash for IE11/ActiveX & Edge on Win10 was finally updated to 20.0.0.272

https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/2755801
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3133431

Remark:   Based on the change in wording in the above document... as well as "confirmed" on my Win8.1 tablet... there has NOT (yet?) been a corresponding update for Win8.x

Answer:Updates 1/5/16 - Flash for IE11/ActiveX & Edge on Win10

So to summarize the Flash confusion at present:
the current Flash plug-in version (non-IE browsers) is 20.0.0.267
The current IE/ActiveX version for Win 7 and earlier is 20.0.0.270
The temporary [?] version for IE10/11 on Windows 8.x is also 20.0.0.267 ; an update was expected, but has not been released as of this writing (6 January 2016, 12:40pm EST).
The current IE11/ActiveX and Edge version for Win 10 is [allegedly] 20.0.0.272

Yesterday I was forced to reboot my computer as MS installed some Windows Updates. After the reboot I can no longer access google.com's main page and some other https site like my companies Citrix Storefront login page. These all worked before the forced update. There were 2 updates installed KB3142588 and KB3140768. I uninstalled the KB3142588 and rebooted and everything worked again. Later in the day again MS installed something and forced me to reboot. After the reboot, the same problem came back. Funny thing now, is that those 2 updates are no longer there and were replaced by others. One of them I could uninstall and the other I cannot. I uninstalled the one (didn't write done the KB#) and rebooted and still the same problem. It only really seems to be issues with some https sites. I can't believe that there is a problem with googles certificate.

I get a "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". The security certificate presented by this website is not secure. Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept and data you send to the server.

I cannot just accept the cert nor can I look at it like I could in Windows 7.

Hello,

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Cheers,
hussar

Suddenly Pinterest.com fails to load in Edge; a few pins appear but then the page freezes. This same Pinterest account works fine in IE on this same computer and also loads fine in Edge on other computers. Here is what I've tried without success:

1. Clear browser cache and cookies
2. Delete all files in Edge recovery folder
3. Sign in with another Pinterest user account
4. Sign in with local account instead of Microsoft Account
5. Removed saved password for Pinterest
6. Reboot computer

Edge performs perfectly with all other sites. This issue is apparently limited to this one site in this one browser on this one computer. Pinterest support suggested we use IE Of course, but I like to figure out what causes these things to happen. It may be irrelevant but this issue was first observed following a batch of Windows updates on 12/13/16. The only one that looked like a remote possibility was KB3206632, but that was a significant cumulative update that I really do not want to uninstall. Furthermore, that same update was applied to another computer which does not exhibit this issue. I'm out of ideas. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You've tried all the obvious things I would have suggested, but there is one more you could have a look at, the 'Use Microsoft Compatibility List' setting. This is hidden on a 'Developer settings' page which you get to by typing about:flags in Edge's address bar. Are the 'working' Edge PCs also on 1607? If so, compare this settings page on the Edge that doesn't work with the settings for one that does and see if they are different. If only the 'non-working' Edge is on 1607, then try turning 'Use Microsoft Compatibility List' on or off and see if it makes a difference.

Hi there

Is there any way to copy the stored passwords / account information saved in IE11 to edge

Answer:Copy saved passwords / account info from IE11 to Edge

You should be able to find them in Manage Web Credentials in Control Panel. If there are only a couple you can click on "Show" and it will tell you your password and then you can enter it in Edge.


Both Edge and IE store user id/passwords here I believe but I'm not sure how to make one browser use the credentials saved by the other or even if you can.

Hello,
I'm encountering a problem on different computers.
Internet Explorer 11 and Edge are not able to open files from a shared folder located on the same computer.
For example, let's say I typed this "\\10.100.100.10\folder_1\DOC_FILE.doc" on the address bar.
The browser then shows : "This page can't be displayed".
When I display more information, the error "INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND" appears.
I have already tried to uncheck "Enable TCP Fast open" and it is still not working.
It seems like this problem cannot be reproduced on all IE11/EDGE browsers, and can be encountered on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Any ideas ?

I setup a new user on a stand-alone Windows 10 laptop this weekend and noticed that most websites hang in both Edge and IE11.  I had a look at the user's rights and made sure that they were removed from the local USERS group and only were a member of
the Administrators group.  Then I looked at IE itself and found that if I ran IE as administrator, it worked fine, so I logged the user out and back in again, and still nothing.  I also noticed that IE has a setting to run with administrative privileges,
which I enabled and still nothing.  I thought at this point that it might be a website issue, or at least an ISP issue.  I tried the same sites with the first logged in account on the same machine and everything worked fine.
At this point I was looking at a user rights issue, I thought.  Then I tried the same sites with the new user using Chrome and everything worked fine.  So I'm at a loss as to what this might be.  I've check that IE is using software rendering
so that's not the issue.
Any ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
An example of a site would be to go to www.webex.com then try to log in.  The login page just spins and spins.

IE 11 is the browser that currently frustrates me the least (doesn't 'not responding' that often)

Firefox is unusable: always having unresponsive script error causes it to hang forever, & cumsumes between 358-498 MB RAM (upgrade is not an option, this is a 3GB RAM Work laptop)

Comodo Icedragon is just as unusable: unresponsive script error happens less often, but cumsumes just as much RAM. Worse: trying to go to Any websites='cannot find server'

So anyone knows a better non-chromium browser? (chromium's multi-process architecture eats more RAM than firefox)
 

Answer:So is ie11 the best browser now?

I have IE11 installed, but rarely used.

Best browsers for 64-bit systems: PaleMoon, Waterfox.

I have visited this forum before, but just joined today to try to get a solution to my problem:
I can't get IE11 set as my default browser (and it's the only one I use and have installed).
There's an old thread dating back to March 2014 talking about the same problem- a pop-up every
time I open IE11 that asks if I want IE11 as my default browser. I have answered that "yes" dozens of times
and also used the Tools/Internet Options/Programs-"Make Default" button, and none works.
(That thread was called "Browser won't remain as default")

That previous thread ultimately gave a 5-step solution and I follwed those:
1- search for specfic programs and uninstall- I didn't have the Delta one, but cleaned out
some recent installs that may be issues;
2- remove Delta browser hijacker with Adwcleaner- I have used this program before, and ran it again-
it did not find Delta or much else, but cleaned out nevertheless- (Adwcleaner worries me, inasmuch as it
seems to disappear from my computer every week or so..?);
3- run Junkware removal tool- did that and it cleaned out one or two items;
4- run Malwarebytes Free- I use this regularly- this time at found a few items;
5- run HitmanPro- did this also
None of these processes solved the problem- (that user did a repair/install of windows 7 finally)

Windows10 Home, 64bit
Internet Explorer 11 (version 11.1358.14393.0, updateversion 11.0.43  KB4021558)
Microsoft Edge

The Main Question is:
"Why does my IE11 try to access my harddrive/s ?"

I am using an additional 1TB WD hd from an older PC as drive G:
This drive seems to be powering itself down if it is not being in use after some time.
If i us the the windows explorer by clicking on "This PC /My Computer" from the start menu, i hear one drive starting up. (spinning sound)
This is ok so far, even if i donīt know exactly why it is doing this, but i donīt mind.
(computer management/drive management, drive G:, is the only drive i still have the option available "set partition to active")
Is that the reason why ?
Anyway, what annoys me and worries me a bit is the fact, that when i start my Internet Explorer 11, i hear the same spinning sound from that drive.
I canīt tell you if that was always like it since i added that drive or not, but i recently noticed that behavior.
Edge is being used as standard browser, but i mostly use IE11.
So, can someone tell me when i open my IE11 why it tries to access my harddrive/s ?
Is that necessary and if not, how can i prevent that ?
Ah and by the way; this doesnīt happen if i us MS Edge".

again
that behavior might be ok for windows explorer
but it worries me when it happens with my Internet Explorer 11

Then when I went to browse Redbox, nothing was showing properly (very slow/garbled!))?
I rebooted & ran negative KIS2013 Full/Critical/rootkit scans.

Rebooted again, and ran my Full on-demand scans (KIS disabled until Restart)-
MBAM was negative.
Emsisoft-Kit found a High Risk browser hijacker in the registry- Quarantined/reboot twice.
I have since been able to restore FF to normal Google homepage (with Chrome), but Not IE11 (seems OK otherwise?).
I've tried Deleting all web page history, Signing out/In, retyping the URL..., but still no Chrome?

I'm scared to use IE11 now, and wonder how I can restore it!?

Not a plea for help, but a warning of sorts. Yesterday, IE11 on this system appeared to get hijacked by something in an advertisement. SWMBO (the only user on this box that uses IE11) was on the Daily Mail web site and the CPU usage went through the roof. I'm guessing a third party pixel element in one of the multitude of pictures and ads this site has. There were two pop up messages displayed on top of the web page. One stated that Google Chrome had crashed. The other said the same thing and offered to report the problem. I didn't bite on that one. Task Manager showed multiple copies of "pjjisiyz.exe" running and more would start if you ended one. I signed off the user session and logged in as Administrator. I stopped the browser service, ended all of the copies of the executable, but they would restart as soon as the original user would log back in. I searched the system for the executable and only found it by lopping off the last two characters of the name. It was in a folder called "DSLQJTBZPRI". This folder was in a folder called "PlayReady". The path was C:\Users\"userid"\AppData\LocalLow\Playready. I deleted the PlayReady folder, followed by CCleaner with secure deletion (7 times overwrite) and the problem went away. Here's the twist.

Hi -

I have browser problems after a windows update came along on 19 November. It turned out to be an IE11 upgrade to IE10. If it wasn't marked as a critical update I would not have bothered

Prior to the update all was well. Post update the IE11 has trouble connecting to some sites: eg Latest news, world news, sport and comment from the Guardian | theguardian.com | The Guardian and Free website | Free blog | Create a free website | Weebly fails to load and Home | Mail Online works fine.

The browser just reports that it is 'waiting for response from website'

So, I tried rolling back the machine to the restore point prior to the update. Now back to IE10, BUT the same problem persists.

Next, I unrestored the unrestore and reverted to IE11. I then tried uninstalling the update. Back to IE10 and same problem.

I tried turning off the windows firewall and disabling the virus scanner. Same problem. I checked the latest version of Flash is installed.

So, I downloaded and installed Chrome. Chrome has the same problem, except that if you stop the page loading it will render the page as far as it has got. Successive reloads and stop loading clicks will get most of the page.

Chrome is now my default browser. Funnily enough, Chrome seems to be getting better at getting web pages as it is used more. Seven forums has only just become usable!

Is there a fix for this ? Machine is w7 Pro SP1.

I have several Yahoo email accounts I use for different purposes. I generally like to stay logged in, so I use a different browser for each. I use IE11 for one account I infrequently check. Since the Anniversary Update (1607) Yahoo Mail reports:





You're seeing Basic Mail because you're using an unsupported Internet browser. Upgrade your browser or get the mobile app for the full Yahoo experience.
Don't show this again.



It's been a while since I last checked that account, but I'm fairly sure I got 'the full Yahoo experience' with 1511. Can anyone confirm that?

(edit: spelling)

Answer:Yahoo says IE11 is an 'unsupported browser' since Anniversary Update

Compatibility view? i have internet explorer 11 but yahoo mail says i have an unsupported - Microsoft Community

Strangest thing.

I have two computers running side by side. Both have Windows 7 64. Both say they run the exact same version of IE11 (11.0.9600.17126). Both used to look identical.

Yesterday, I opened my second computer and the IE11 browser was different. Black background behind the menu bar instead of transparent. And all the top menus and address bar disappear (and come back if I right click on the screen someplace).

The new browser is terrible. The top menu only hides sometimes. And if it doesn't hide, then it cuts off the top of whatever page I'm looking at. It also feels buggy loading up.

From what I can figure, it sounds like this is the version of IE11 meant for windows 8 users. But I have no idea why it would change on one computer and not the other (both have automatic updates).

I'd love to get the old version back. Anyone able to suggest how to do this without losing all my favorites etc through uninstalling/reinstalling?

Answer:My IE11 browser changed - how do I revert to the previous version?

Hi version numbers can vary a bit depending on where exactly you download them from,
The only thing that stays consistent is the KB# ........ under the version,
Make sure this is what shows,
MS14-037: Security update for Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11: July 8, 2014
The KB# will reflect the most recent security updates,

If your having issues on one machine you could switch to Software rendering and see if it helps the visual differences,

If it does then one machine needs to have it's graphics driver updated from the computer manufactures website,

Good morning,
 
After noticing that random websites were failing to load consistently, I looked through my IE11 settings and saw that the option to use a proxy server was checked. If I uncheck the proxy server option:
The proxy server option sometimes will be enabled again when restarting IE11
New tabs I open during the same session of IE11 will again have that Proxy Server option enabled
Occasionally, the same tab will revert back to having the Proxy Server option enabled
The proxy server address field remains blank through all of this (there was a value in there some time ago, but clearing it out once eliminated that issue. I have tried the following in addition to manually clearing the proxy server check box and address field:
Malwarebytes
CCleaner
Adware Cleaner
Significant malware and adware was cleaned up by these programs. With regard to this issue, the only improvement was that sometimes (but not always) the first tab only has the proxy server box unchecked when opening my IE11.
 
I am using this computer at home. I have never knowingly used a proxy server.
 
Please help. Thank you!

Answer:Windows 8.1 IE11, browser starts with proxy server enabled

I cannot run DDS on my PC. I can download it, but running it gives an error that DDS will not run in Compatibility mode.
 
Not sure if this blocking of DDS is part of my issue.
 
Please advise.

So I have a client who just got 10 new windows 10 machines and added them to the windows 2008R2 domain. By default, Edge is the set browser and I know I can manually go into the profile and set the preferred browser but the problem is multiple users connect to each machine (this is in a DR office) the nurses move around and log into their profiles on each machine. So they would have to do this on each machine for each user which they don't want to do.

Is there a way to enforce the browser for all windows 10 machines via GPA to use IE11 that comes with windows 10?

My idea was to either domain wide on windows 10 machines use IE11 or if not possible created a GPA based on OS and set the default browser.

Or worst case figures out a way to remove Edge from the machines.

Does anyone happen to know a way or ran into this issue previously?

Answer:Any way to force IE11 as default browser via domain GP? Server 2008

Check with Microsoft before attempting to remove Edge, you might end up with in-valid/un-authentic Windows. If memory serves me, I think the IT people had to develop a PUSH technology, a forced net-station download and a forced Top/Down maintenance, in order to enforce certain defaults.

We have a mission critical program that now crashes because of the patch KB3160005 that was uploaded to all of our Windows 7 Professional computers on 6/14/16. When the employee tries to open a PDF in this program, IE11 hangs and the PDF will not open either.
IE11 must be shutdown. Our work around is to remove KB3160005 and then check for the updates and when it appears to hide it and this fixes the problem.

This update is shown to be critical according to TechNet and so I would like to know which one of the 5 patches incorporated into the patch is actually causing the problem and what we can do to fix it and not lose the update by removing it.
Windows 10 Professional will sometime exhibit the same issues with the same mission critical program, but the patch KB3160005 is not on any of the systems I have looked at, so I have to merely reset the browser and then all is well after that.
Any help would be greatly appreciated because this is taking up all of the helpdesk's time resetting this patch and making our employees efficient again.
Thank you,

Hi,
1. I cannot find a solution for a problem accessing Microsoft forums websites from Windows 10 - IE11 and Edge browsers:
in EDGE - Hmm, we can't reach this page.   IE11 this page can't be displayed.
For about a year it worked at least from Edge. Now both cannot access Microsoft forums. All the other sites are accessible.
I am using a corporate proxy. The same sites are accessible from Windows 7 with IE11.
First I blamed our IE GPO with multiple settings. So for a test I placed my machine in Blocked OU (no IE GPO, proxy is set from different GPO).
Everything what I tried didn't help. The question: why just Microsoft forums (no other sites) are not accessible.
Did couple of tests from Windows 7 IE11 machines. The same Microsoft forums are perfectly accessible (all GPOs are applied).
Suddenly, found that one corporate Web App does the same : "This  page can't be displayed". On other Windows 7 it does work.
I am out of ideas now... cannot blame anymore our GPO or proxy...
Any advice?
Thanks

I have 7 email accounts on our Exchange server for different business and personal roles.  I have always used OWA instead of Outlook to segregate accounts on my desktop.  For quick logins I have been using "Keyboard Express"
Macro program  to insert USER and PASSWORD into OWA.   With some update applied in December 2015, Keyboard Express no long works on most of my Macro hotkeys because the IE hotkeys have taken precedence.  Such as ALT-H and other.
This same think happened to IE11 when I ran the Windows 10 upgrade 2 months ago, so I restored Win7 with a disk image to get rid of Window 10.
Is there a way to assign precedence between a Macro Program and IE11 Hotkeys ?

anyone seen this one?
on booting up 8.1, lenovo z410, the first few attempts to use IE11 from the desktop fail. "cannot open page".
connection troubleshooter produces nothing.

go to APPS > IE and it works fine.

after using chrome and the tile app for awhile, IE11-Desktop will gain coherency and start working.

is there a way to reinstall the desktop side?

this is a clean install with little/nothing loaded on it, about to be deployed for real work so its important.
I've never seen this issue before on 7/8 so kinda lost/bewildered

Answer:IE11 Desktop fails connection. IE11 Tile App succeeds

Maybe can not get that page immediately, try setting blank page for start-up. (about:blank) and than as a start page.

Good Afternoon,

I am running into issues trying to upgrade to IE11. It looks like there are several issues in my CheckSUR Log, but I am not sure how to fix them. I have ran SFC /scannow a couple times and no errors have been identified. I have been having this problem for a couple months now and have just been using Chrome. I have also had several issues with the Aero Effects and Themes as I have to troubleshoot that multiple times a day.
I am receiving error code '3FD' from Windows Update regarding IE11.

Attached is my log.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Answer:IE11 Update/Install Issue - Trying to Upgrade to IE11

hello and welcome skohon now personally I would download IE11 Download Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 from Official Microsoft Download Center - it says on my machine I already have it if yours does the there is something quite wrong.

If it is not on your machine then you save the above to downloads and then do what is in this Install or uninstall Internet Explorer - Windows Help

I have done this myself on odd occasions and it saves you having to muck around with updates.

First you might like to run this though in safe mode if necessary
Disk Check and run the /f and /r switches if necessary.

Not much being said about this, and having spent 45 minutes simply trying to import and organise my FFX bookmarks I'm not too surprised. I really like Win 10 but, fast as it is, this browser should never have been released on the public in this state. Frustrating doesn't start to do it justice.

Question: Edge Browser

I have been playing around with the Edge Browser having removed IE 11.
I have found that if you bring the web page up you want like
Face Book (social)
Outlook.com (mail)
Youtube (Entertainment)
Google (Browser)

Right click and add them to the Favourites Bar,
They show up on your home menu found at top of page like msn, or bing once there all you have to do is click on the one you want and it will take you straight to the page you want.
Thought it might help some members.
