IE11 - Strange behavior on PDF files - Intranet and Internet

Q: IE11 - Strange behavior on PDF files - Intranet and Internet

Hi,
I'm currently have the issue, that mainly PDF files are handled different ways on each website.

First example: I open a PDF file in our document management system (Intranet), I only can choose to save
the file. If I open the catering menu pdf (Intranet), it opens directly in the IE11.
Seconde example: I search google for any PDF (i.e.
http://www.orimi.com/pdf-test.pdf), it opens within the IE11.
If I open Outlook Webaccess, I only can download the file.
In the past with IE 10, I have been asked to open or to save the file.

Any idea what happened here? IE 11 is configured through GPO.




Thank you for your help!
Regards
Alex

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.

Hi,
 
I noticed my laptop going a bit slow recently, and I figured something was wrong. 
 
I'm running windows Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2.  Windows is up to date according to windows updater.
I have Eset Nod32 Antivirus 4 which starts up automatically.
I also occastionally run Malwarebytes, which hasn't found anything.
 
I tried to empty my windows/temp folder, and could not delete 3 files:
GNserv.dat
hlktmp
spserv.dat
 
I did some searching on these forums and elsewhere, and saw recommendations for others with some of those files to try a scan with SuperAntiSpyware
 
I ran a complete scan in safe mode, which came up with a few things:
 
Adware.CouponBar
Trojan.Agent/Gen-FakeAlert[Local]
Trojan.Agent/Gen-MultiFraud
Adware.IEPlugin
 
I removed those, and a second scan shows up all clean.
However, I am still unable to delete those temp files outside of safe mode.
If I delete them on safe mode, they're back on the next system restart.
 
When I look at task manager, I see a lot of disk activity.  It does stop sometimes, but it's still a bit concerning.  I was hoping someone could help me diagnose what's going on here.
 
I appreciate any help you are able to offer,
Thanks

Hello,

I am using a cable model and a linksys router.
I have Vista Home Premium 64 Bit.

Every time I turn on the computer I see the icon that the computer is connected to the network but I don't have internet.

I check the detail and it confirms:
It is connected to the network but not to internet.

I disconnect from the network and connect it again and now it also gets connected to the internet as expected.

The detail of my connection is:
MyHomeNetwork (Private Network)
Access: Local and Internet

I always need to disconnect and connect again my network when I start my computer. And some times when I get problems and I am not able to load web pages I need to do the same.

What is wrong?

Thank You,
Miguel

Hi,

I am running IE 11 on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 server, which is part of a domain.

When accessing sites from the internal network, I get a blank page. I noticed that it was due to the fact that these sites are not in the "Local intranet" zone, and when I add them manually it works.

In Internet Options > Security > Local intranet, when I click on "Sites", I directly have the window with the advanced configuration, where I have to manually define a list of websites. I do not see the window
with the "Automatically detect intranet network" checkbox (but I have it on other servers).

If I manually add the IP and domain with wildcards, I can access my internal sites, but I would have to do that for every user connecting to the server. I'd prefer if it was automatic, as it is on other servers.

Can you help me please ?
Thanks.

I fear that an old PC I recently purchased from a garage sale may have had a virus that spread throughout my network.

First, a little bit of background about this computer. Around December of last year, it was infected by a virus that seemed to be neutralized after some assistance. But within a week, the computer wouldn't even start up anymore, as it would freeze up before even displaying the desktop icons. To my dismay, I found out that the Vista install CD had ran away to some remote area of the downstairs garage, so I installed a copy of Windows Server 2008 I had on hand (I got it for free). Anyways, long story short, it turned out there wasn't an antivirus in the world that would let me install their software without paying money, due to the fact I had a server OS. I wound up installing Microsoft Security Essentials, knowing very well that it was unsupported. But, it was the best I could do for free.

Now, let's fast forward to this weekend.
I had found and purchased a PC for 10 dollars at a garage sale. The owners said that it had been in storage for a long time, but it had some nice goodies that came with it, such as a TV tuner card, and it had Windows XP. So, with great amounts of excitement, I slammed that computer tower onto my desk, plugged it in, and turned it on. It wasn't fast, but it seemed a bit cool, and a bit of a blast to the past after having Windows Vista for the longest time. I then connected it to the Internet. At that moment, I noticed ...

Hello,

I first noticed what I believe was part of the problem when opening C drive from My Computer would display a new window, when usually it displays in the same. Some quick research shows that apparently it is related to some sort of malware.

I have also found some new files in the root of C:\
Code:

C:\autorun.inf
C:\resycled\boot.com

Also, after having the device plugged in for a while, my flash drive (Identified as E:\) did not open when accessed normally. Instead, an empty command prompt appeared with the title "boot.com". Upon further investigation there has been two files and a directory created in the flash drive, the same as found in C drive. The contents of autorun.inf is readable, here's what it contains:
Code:

[autorun]

After deleting the offending file and directory from the flash drive (E:\), Windows shows the following error when attempting to access it (why C:\?):
Code:

C:\resycled\boot.com is not a valid Win32 application.

Note that I can still double click on C:\ and it opens in the same window, all fine, even though the offending files still exist there as well.

Ok, I'm relatively new at the whole computer thing and I know, "What took you so long?"

I have Windows XP but just recently, when I try to open Internet Explorer, it may take a few attempts before it opens.(ya' know the hourglass expires before anything happens) However, when I log off, ending program task panel opens, then ending program iexplore.exe opens and keeps opening for the amount of times I tried to open internet explorer.
This leads me to believe that it in fact opened somewhere but not anywhere I can see it. Also on occasion, the task panel will turn blue for quite sometime when I close out an open window.
I tried searching for an answer to this problem but to no avail, so any advice here would be most appreciated.

Morning all,

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Yesterday I started experiencing some odd behavior on my Dell Inspiron 9400 Laptop. This PC is running Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) and I have not had any issues until now.

I first began having issues reading CD's on my Pioneer DVD-R drive. Specifically, I was trying to install Diablo 2 and the X-pac, it would struggle to read the disc at all (it would try for a good minute). So, cleaned it, etc, etc, it looked fine. Tried it on GF's computer booted up fine. Even all of the other Diablo 2 CD's didn't work on mine, but worked on hers. I did test a DVD (Batman Begins , and that worked with no problems). I also use MagicDisc, which is a virtual CD-drive emulator, and that would also not recognize any of those discs. I have a virtual machine running Windows XP pro and that had zero problems reading these discs as well.

After fooling around with that, I realized my Program Files folder under m C:\ drive was gone. I've never heard or seen anything like that. It would let me browse to it if I typed in the full path "C:\Program Files".

I searched for drivers for the Pioneer drive and I did not see any updates, I uninstalled them and reinstalled the same ones, that didn't do anything though. Anyone have any ideas for this issue? I've run AVG, Ad-aware, and Spybot full scans with nothing serious showing up.

We have deployed IE11 via IEAK and have a proxy set which currently set to return direct for all sites. This means IE is seeing all external sites in the intranet zone due to the setting 'include all sites that bypass the proxy server' being enabled. If
I manually untick this then everything works as all external sites are in the internet zone and the setting is permanent.
However, I need to deploy this setting site wide and the group policy "Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Page - Intranet Sites: Include all sites that bypass the proxy server" (both computer and user) set to disable
only greys out the box unticked but does not actually move external sites into the internet zone.
I've tried using GPP to delete the registry key HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Proxybypass which does work but as soon as I re-launch IE the setting is written back with the value 1 and it is back in the wrong state
again.
Using process monitor I can see it is iexplore.exe that sets this key back to 1 on launch and when I manually untick the box all it does it delete the Proxybypass key and nothing else. Has anyone seen this before and managed to work around it?  It seems
very similar to

Recently I've been having trouble closing Internet Explorer successfully. Oftentimes I'll get a very suspicious error window that says "closing this window may cause serious problems." Generally when that happens I'll end the process via Task Manager rather than clicking on anything on the error window. I'm a bit paranoid that I may be infected with a key-logger of some type and I'd very much like to keep my online accounts secured. Once I've gotten the all clear from you guys I plan on creating new strong passwords for all my accounts. It seems like I haven't seen the problem since installing the latest Windows Updates recently (including the latest malware removal tool) but I thought I'd ask the pros just to be safe rather than sorry.

I hope someone can help me work this out, it's driving me crazy!
I'll try to explain it in as few words as possible!
There is a website we need to access on which we're having trouble getting some of the buttons to display.  In short it works when the internet zone is set to "Medium" but not when it's "Medium-High" (I have added it to trusted sites
but in properties it shows as "Unknown Zone (Mixed)" so seems to use the "Internet Zone" settings.)
I am trying to track down which security setting is causing the issue.  To do this my plan was to make a note of all the settings that differ between Medium and Medium-High.  However if I set it to medium-high and manually change all the settings
to be identical to medium it still doesn't work... yet if I use the "Reset to: Medium" option at the bottom it does work!  This doesn't make any sense to me.
Are there other hidden stetting affected by the "Reset to" option that I can't change manually.
Any help would really be appreciated!  Thanks!

Hi,

We have an odd issue. IE11 is running all sites in compatibility mode. This appears to be because it is treating all sites as being in the Intranet Zone. This is:
a) breaks many websites that require modern browsers 
b) is a huge security issue as many protections are disabled by default on the intranet zone.

Has anyone else seen this or have ideas on what we can do to solve it.

I will add that we have autodetect proxy settings enabled, and wpad hosts a proxy.pac that instructs browsers to go direct to all websites. 

Thanks

Settings\5.0\Cache\Content" to the 50 MB.
After the user logged on i checked the registry to verify if rhe gpo is applied successfully, and the value was changed correctly to 50 MB. However, after starting the Internet Explorer and checking the properties, the default value of 250 MB space appears.
Refreshing the registry reveals that my 50 MB setting was simply overwritten to the default value of 250 MB after starting Internet Explorer.

A:IE11 Temporary Internet Files Settings GPO

Hi,
Could you please have a share with the network environment and the IE version?
To increase the Disk space used in temporary Internet Files, we should configure the following two registries:
1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\Cache\Content

Change the CacheLimit value to the size you want (change the Base to Decimal);
2. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Cache\Content

Change the CacheLimit value to the same size in step one.
Please check if the above could solve the issue.

My work laptop is running Windows 7 and IE11.  Multiple times per day I have to go into Internet Settings because something is changing the "Check for newer versions of stored pages" from Every time I visit (my preference) to Never.  I do a lot of html/JavaScript/ColdFusion development and it is frustrating when I think some code that I've changed isn't working...only to find out that the browser has changed to Never again.
 
Our desktop team doesn't know what is going on - and claims there isn't a policy setting this value.
 
Any suggestions?  This was happening before when using IE9 as well.  It seems to happen 4-5 times per day for multiple days in a row...and then it will stop for a week or more before starting up again.
 
As you can imagine - it's difficult to do web development when your environment keeps changing.
 
Is there a way to "lock down" the value?  Is there a way to determine how/when it is getting changed?
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you!!

This happens with any file from any site, I've tried downloading from CNET, Softpedia, Adobe, and various external mirror sites. Even windows update won't make it more than ten percent before it gets hung.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I searched the site and found nothing relevant to this problem. Ever since the Patch Tuesday updates of 11/12/14, the system has been building temporary internet files and cookies by huge amounts even when IE11 has not been selected from the desktop. I can go in as the Admin. and delete all of the temporary internet folders and cookie folders that I am allowed to. There are some that are blocked even from the Admin., reboot the system with no applications launced, and watch the files build. In 30 minutes, there will hundreds of files and dozens of cookies created, even though no browser was launched. The system has two users defined, the Admin and the one we use for normal operation. Our grandkids use this system, hence the second user without Admin rights. IE11 is used only by my wife, as I use FF for my browsing (with AdBlock Plus & Ghostery enabled). We have a standing policy of running CCleaner (v4.19) after every browsing session. I have also noticed that the process SVCHOST LOCAL SERVICE will have many instances running.

A:IE11 Temporary Internet Files & Cookies W/O IE Loaded.

I think I found the reason for all of the IE activity. I ran MSERT.EXE last night and it found "win32 trojan downloader" on the system and removed it. It appears that fixed the problem. Here's a link to MSERT.EXE. I ran a full scan as the quick scan didn't find anything. I also went and deleted all of the existing temporary internet files that were on the system.

Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner

Update: It's been nearly 24 hours since MSERT.EXE ran and the runaway IE file building has ceased. The system has been shutdown and booted three times in that period and no repeat of the problem. I'm going to call this one solved.

A very high percentage of users are able to click on a link within our intranet pages to display the content in a seperate window using adobe acrobat v 6.0.1

I have come across a couple of users that are unable to do this. The seperate window opens but adobe reader does not seem to activate and all they see is an icon in the top left corner (usually what you see when an image is not available).

The link is good bacause it works on other machines and it is all pdf links that are not working on these 2 problem machines.

I have tried installing all windows updates and available adobe updates but has made no difference. I have tried going through control panel\folder options and selecting adobe reader as the program to view all pdf files.

Anybody having issues where IE11 makes your screen flicker black or seems to be using a lot of CPU power?

For some strange reason IE11 has been acting strange - either causing screen flickering, causing high CPU usage, or losing focus. And what I mean by losing focus - yesterday where posting here, I was trying to link a word by clicking the link icon (blue globe), and it simply wouldn't work. Had to manually link the sentence. Anyway closing out of IE and re-opening it fixed the issue. BTW this isn't the first time this happened this week.

Bottom line is IE11 is issuing some strange behavior lately. Anyone else seeing this?

Thanks.

Also, wiggling it around and/or place a vacuum-cleaner on a 45 degree angle (DO NOT PLACE IT DIRECTLY ON TOP!!!) over the button to suck out loose dust. NEVER TOUCH THE LAPTOP with the vacuum-cleaner!!!

As noted in my profile running Windows 7 Professional and all was working well until a couple of days ago.  I upgraded my internet service through Comcast to 30 Mbps download speed, and initially was not seeing that speed on my PC.  I adjusted MTU on my router (Netgear WNDR3400 running DD-WRT) down from 1500 to 1450 and that seemed to allow the speed measured by Speedtest.com to go up to my anticipated 30Mbps. But almost immediately, I noticed while I could get email messages through my Comcast email account I could not get messages from my Charter mail account, and more worrisome is that I now have very limited ability to load websites...something seems to be re-directing the searches and the sites never load.  Some load OK (like Bleeping Computer (luckily ), but while speedtest.com won't load, I can load the speedtest on the Comcast site.
 
I ran MalwareBytes and removed a few problems, and tried to install Avast Free (had been using AVG regularly), but Avast says "Unable to start scan: there are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper".
 
Please evaluate these symptoms and let me know a next step to take.  Please also indicate if this should be posted and continued in another Forum...I wasn't sure where to begin so thought the Forum for my OS would be a logical starting point.

Hi all,

At our work we run a WPAD script as a proxy for all users.

There's an Active Directory group that gives restricted internet access to domain accounts by tying a filter in our web filtering product to that AD group.

I have an issue where one of our IT guys logged onto a Windows XP machine using his domain account. He then switched to the local Administrator account.

He put the URL to the WPAD.dat file in his proxy settings in Internet Explorer. He was then able to access the external internet, but without having to provide a domain account/password after authenticating with the Admin account. So, he logs into a machine using a domain account, while logged in he changes his login to the local Administrator account, then he gets on the internet.

Now, what's strange about this (to me at least) is that we follow standard default-deny practice (if you're not a member of an AD group tied to a filter, you get blocked). The reason he was able to get on the internet was because that restricted internet access group in AD was applied to the local Admin account after he logged into it, thus the web filter allowed him through to the net. This should not be happening, right? A global AD group shouldn't be randomly applied to a local, machine-based account, even if it is Administrator (no local Admin accounts on any machine are members of that group, only domain accounts).

Is this an example of privilege escalation, or am I missing something here?

When I tried connecting my ipod to my laptop, it didn't recognize my ipod so I did what is written in here http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1363. Later when I did another try, it does recognize my ipod but when it actually brought me to itunes, I can see the word 'hijack' on the search bar in itunes then later it went blank again like the normal search bar. Since then, I experienced weird things happening to my browser. Like today when I click on one of my html files, it brings me to my browser but shows me some error which never happened before in the past then it opens another 2 browser tabs with the address: www.and.com and www.settings.comWhen I was browsing the internet earlier, it messed up my browser settings. Like it changed my bookmarks and shortcuts to the websites that I never visit. After that I had to close my browser. Later when I click on my browser again, it goes back to my normal settings. So I am wondering if this is normal? or am I infected by some browser hijacker or something?I hope someone could help me with this.

Hi all
First post, so hello everyone,

I have a basic mp3 player ( ALBA ) 1 gb. The player works well and I've had it nearly 6 years.

But when I connect it to my laptop (running Vista Ultra) via usb and format it there's 996mb of free space.

Lately when adding an audiobook which is, say 185mb long, it will only load two thirds of the audiobook and a small window appears saying can't create no.178 (or stops transfering at 178 when theres 240 parts to the audiobook.

Another strange thing is that I've had "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows" (995mbs) on the player and it loaded without a hitch. (May have been magically shortened to get it all on) some how I don't think thats the case.

But why does it accept a large audiobook and then wont even accept just over 100 mbs.

I was thinking that the formatting application on Vista is at fault.

Any ideas on this one please.

Thanks.

Hey,

So I have an HP ExperssCard Digital/Anaglog TV Tuner for my laptop.

So the first thing I did after inserting it (and after installing the dirver of course) i went to windows media centre to setup the TV Signal. It worked fine, I have a analog cable source.

Then sometime later, it just said there was no signal coming into my device, which made no sense because the HP QuickPlay program could play the TV fine.

So now I go to resetup the TV Signal but it will ONLY look for a digital signal and it does not seem to be looking for my analog source at all.

Is there anyway to make it find this signal or why it would have just arbitraily stopped? i really can't rmember doing anything that would break this at all, and I am quite experienced with computers, just not with this program since I never had a tv tuner till now.

thanks for all your help!

Ok, so let me start off with my spec:

Windows 7 Pro X64
Intel I7
16GB Ram
NVidia GeForce GTX 750ti (latest driver)
liquid cooled core
1 x SSD
1 x HDD (storage)

Now my PC is custom a year old, the OS was done by me. I have had no issues until this error started, no new hardware installed, it started about 2 months ago.

So the issue, my PC will randomly restart, you could be mid email or opening Google chrome (this is important and I will come back to this later) the Event log shows an error ID of 41, which is "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" no other logs, so not much use there, so I don't think this points to an OS issue

so what have I done?

-had the PC sent back to the shop they stress tested it, and all tests came back as no issues

-I imaged the SSD and HDD using Acronis replaced both drives, random restart still happens

-ran both chkdsk /f C: and Memory Diagnostic tool, both fine

-unplugged all USB devices and changed keyboard and mouse

after all this it still restarts, it could do nothing for 3 days, then restart 5 times in one day.

now I know you will say its overheating... nope the core is a steady 50?C - 65?C (which is optimal)



So it really doesn't like Google Chrome, if I open it, it will restart the PC 5 out of 10 times, almost instantly within a second of chrome opening. using internet explorer it still restarts but not as much. it has restarted using Adobe also

I turned on my computer this afternoon, only to find out that Windows Explorer will not open multiple files. Outlining a group of files and clicking the "open" command produces an error message that says Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Clicking the "debug" command locks up the system.

It was working fine just a couple of days ago, and I have no idea what I could have done to alter the system in this way. I've cleaned out the registry, disabled DrWatson, and restored the system to a previous day, but the error still persists.

Any ideas?

Quicken Home and Business 2011 gives and administrator account error on start, it works only partially, very slowly and without the mouse. this works fine on the laptop with Quicken and Windows 10.

I have 2 scenarios I can think of,
1. keep fighting these and other less critical problem until Windows 10 works correctly
2. restore the PC from an Acronis backup I did before the upgrade and start again.

if I restore this PC back to Windows 7 from a backup, will Microsoft have any issues with doing the upgrade again? It would be a lot easier than a rollback inside WIndows 10.

many people are having issues with Quicken and Windows 10, and so far I have not found a solution. the account that did make it through the upgrade is my main account, and it has administrator privileges so "run as administrator" is not needed. I took ... Read more

Hello. My name is max and i'm a teenager from Illinois. Normally i know considerable amounts about computers, but because my access to the internet is *quite* restricted, i know almost nothing about the internet, viruses, and the like. Recently, my computer (not really my computer, just the one i use for Internet access) has been acting rather strange.

It's been
A) during time when the internet is connected, (broadband) possible shows a pop-up box saying "this page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security risk. Continue? Whether you click yes or no, it comes back in 5 seconds. Even now it's over in the corner. The icon for the window of it on the taskbar is a wierd cube with blue red and green sides.
B) unable to system restore properly
C) find any viruses or adware by using my scanner (latest mcfee specs)

So i ask you... please help!
