Preferred Solution: IE11 opening as blank page even though default page is set via GPO

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.)

I have a problem when opening a new tab on iexplorer 11. Once opening a new tab, it shows a blank page but I would like it to open to the new tabs page, the page that shows the ten most commonly used web pages. I go to internet options, click on the tabs button, make the change from blank page to new tabs page, click apply, ok, ok. All works well for a while but it then somehow mysteriously changes back. I can not seem to get the desired change to remain. Any suggestions?
Thanks

When I try to open IE11 a dialogue box pops up asking if I want to save the web page. When I click it or cancel it IE closes. This also happens in other programs such as Foxit Reader but I can still access the program after I close the boxes. One program (H&R Blck Tax 2014) pops up the box and I save or cancel and the program stays open but the page is blank. I've tried all flavors of fixes I know and then some. Anybody have some ideas as to what might be causing this?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
First thought would be to use the link and exe file type restore reg files see what happens,
Default File Type Associations - Restore

You might need to do this using clean boot or safe mode with networking to download the reg files ?
Use Clean boot,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html

Safe mode with networking,
Shut down your machine, Unplug-Hold the power button down for 30/45 seconds (Power Drain)
Power up and Tap the F8 key continuously until you see a black page with white text,
Use the down arrow key to toggle to safe mode with networking/ hit the enter key.
Login as usual
Other advanced methods,

IE11 is returning a blank page from support.microsoft.com. This is essentially a new install of 64bit Win 7. IE returns the page when I am in the Administrative Account. I changed the account from standard to administrative and it worked. I then changed it back to standard and it failed. I reset IE11. Now that account fails regardless of its type. It is also unable to add search engines. I also had trouble with MS forums. All other web pages that I have tried load normally.

Any ideas? thanks

Frequently in IE11 when I click on something that would load a new web page, IE11 loads the menu bars,etc, but the actual page image/content does not load - IE just displays a blank (white) page. If I hit PFK 5 to refresh the page, the page reloads as it should have loaded the first time. Firefox and Chrome do not have this problem. Also, I've noticed that in IE11 I often have to click on an item a 2nd time in order for the browser to react. I have done no diagnostics up to now. I'm running an HP desktop PC, quad AMD cpu, 6GB memory, Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit with all Windows Updates applied. Anyone know how to fix IE11?

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

Hi

I have a problem. My office has many labs, but from a single lab when someone prints a word document onto a particular printer, it gives out an extra blank page. This blank page is not seen in the print preview unlike which was discussed in the previous forums.

This problem has been encountered only for word documents but not for .pdf files. I have tried even with a single page of word printing, it gives out another blank page. Can anyone resolve this problem. I dont think its the problem with the printer because it works well with other labs and .pdf files from this lab too. Anyways its a HP Laserjet 5SiMX.
 

A:Word document prints an extra blank page but that blank page is not seen in preview

Is the printer in question the default printer for the PC in that lab? Print preview shows how the document would appear based on the settings of the default printer - using another printer can cause changes such as this.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me why I get a message in the lower left corner of IE that says "Opening page about:blank" when visiting a website? Getting this message slows down the load time for the page. I do not get the message with Firefox or Opera, but do with IE. And, I don't get the message on every page of the site.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Opening page about:blank

Can you still browse using IE to any other website? and does it show your homepage whenever you click on IE?

If you're just getting this message to the bottom left hand of IE, you might wanna consider running an antivirus/antispyware scan. There's also a virus infection called about:blank that infects IE. What version of IE do you use by the way?

I have a web site that I plan to put onto CD, i.e. use it locally. The site uses activeX controls hence it is no good for me to use Firefox (as far as I know there are no activeX controls for firefox). However since Firefox is my default browser, I was wondering if there was a coding way (C++, JavaScript, anything) to open this particular web page in IE.

I've been attempting to write C++ code to do this. So far I can open IE with:

system("\"\"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe\"\"");

I believe ShellExecute can be used to open web pages via the Default Browser (I haven't found any tags where I can choose a browser).

Anyone have a clue?

Tried it on another Windows 7 system and it worked fine. Other browsers works fine as well so looks like it is just limited to my IE 9 being corrupted somehow. I tried re-registering some dlls Microsoft site recommended but that did not work. I also tried resetting all settings but that had no effect either.

Hello guys, I've got a client having some trouble getting some pages to open in IE9. It's only certain pages, and the same ones open in Chrome without a problem. No one else in the building is having an issue, just this one machine. If you click on the link to one of the pages, it will just hang there like you didn't click anything, and if you try to open it in a new tab it will just open a new blank tab (although the appropriate address will be in the address bar). These sites all work just fine in Chrome.
 
What I've tried so far:
-Running IE without add-ons
-Running IE with script debugging enabled and "display notification about every script error" enabled (no errors reported)
-Deleting Cookies
-Resetting IE

Hey guys,

I have a client at my workplace who has some problems in Internet Explorer 7 on a Windows XP desktop system.

You see, every time my client wanted to print out something, he/she usually goes into print preview. From there, there is a blank page on the first page, but there is some text on the second (and subsequent) pages. He/she is trying to print from a pop-up window with the menu bars and buttons in place.

I have to experiment and play around with the zoom buttons and even change it from portrait and landscape. My client is trying to print some reports and statistics for the VOIP lines on the administration page. How do I fix the particular issue?

My best guess is to upgrade the entire IE web browser to 8 (or maybe 9). Any other suggestions?

A:IE7 - print preview shows blank on first page, but some text on 2nd page

Hello simon726,

I would recommend upgrading to IE8. IE9 is not compatible with XP.

Also is the computer running the latest service pack?

I often right click in IE (I'm actually using Avant, a kind of IE mask I guess) and select Create Shortcut. It puts a shortcut and my desktop to that page. This mysteriously stopped working. The icon appears on my desktop with the page title and all, but when I double click it, it just opens up my browser and loads about:blank. In the shortcut file's properties, it just says:

Type: Internet Shortcut
Description: (the title of the page)

and then gives me the file's size, location, etc., but it doesn't list the URL anywhere. It's just getting on my nerves having to copy a page's URL to a text file on my desktop if I want to remind myself of something.
 

A:Simple but annoying. Web page shortcuts just open a blank IE page.

Sounds like you have been hijacked by about:blank. Go to this website that will help you remove it.

Hello, ecologists, economists, and efficiency experts:

Can I change the default print dialog on IE to use page range of 1 (first page) instead of all (the current default)?

98% of the pages I print to paper in a browser only require the first page being printed. Those 5-15 pages of esoteric user comments that trail behind my single page are often tossed in the wastebasket.

Perhaps there is a registry tweak or an add-on? Perhaps someone would create an open-source add-on for this? Please help. Thank you!

A:Can I change the print page range default to page 1 instead of all?

The way I do it is to high lite what you want to print and copy/paste to something like Notepad or Wordpad. Then just print from there.

Hi my wife’s friend’s computer is having a problem, first it didn’t have any virus scan problem – so I installed AVG 7.0. AVG ran clean with the current updates. I also ran Adaware and Spybot with current updates and they removed some spyware programs.

My problem now is when I try to access Microsoft’s Windows Update page all I get is a BLANK white screen with a message "Done” in the bottom left corner. I get the same results when I go to the Symantic Security Check web page and I click on the GO button to do the security check, it open a new BLANK white window???

Could this Virus, spyware or just a setting???

Hi there.
I recently had a trojan dnschanger on my laptop. I tried using malwarebytes program to remove it several times and then gave up and sent it in to get repaired at a shop in town. They told me there was no infection and sent it back to me. I reran the test and sure enough it was gone. but...

What had originally made me try using malwarebytes to scan ( avg, spybot s&d, and adaware did not find anything) was that my browser was acting strange. When I do a Google search and click on one of the results, it will load a blank page saying 'done' in the bottom corner, then after 5 seconds or so it will then load the page i wanted.

For instance, I click on "hxxp://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-115088-using-web-browser-page-loads-but-screen-blank" search result and it puts this:

"hxxp://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAcQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.kioskea.net%2Fforum%2Faffich-115088-using-web-browser-page-loads-but-screen-blank&rct=j&q=browser+loads+blank+page+then+&ei=W6JzS6q_G8PgnAec2vmyCQ&usg=AFQjCNHiczGbtPYRraVBQ_7hGcgLE2f6LQ&as_acct=9dm612l7ldg&cr=s6ar6l7"

into the top bar and sits on the blank,'done' page for 5 or 10 secs then goes to the "hxxp://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-115088-using-web-browser-page-loads-but-screen-blank" page after.

Hi. I know about the common problem of people creating blank pages when they don't mean to, but this is not that problem. If I open a new document and type a few characters, it will print a completely blank page, followed by a page with my characters. If I print a 10-page document, it will print 20 pages - 10 blank interspersed with the 10 pages of the document. It prints the blank page first. I've looked through the Word prefs and don't see anything that could cause this. I deleted Normal.dot Any ideas very welcome.
 

A:Word 2007 prints a blank page for every page

Welcome to the forum.

I am guessing your header is messed up. You can look into editing it and saving over top of the normal.dotx but I would just suggest finding the normal.dotx and renaming it normal.old and see if that fixes your problem.

Hello,
sorry, i'm not a computer wizard although I know my way around a bunch of these things.  Have the strangest thing, which I can't figure out.  I have this website, which is giving me always the "Page can't be displayed" error, together
with the TLS and RC4 comments.
Strangly enough, this is the only site where this happens.  All other various sites are accessible (e.g. Google, Facebook, Youtube), so it doesn't seem to be a connectivity problem.   FYI : i also get this same problem with Chrome.
I believe I had no problems with this on my previous computer, who also had IE11.  It must be some of the security settings or some kind of access right, although nothing special is installed.
I have the TLS 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 turned on.  I also tried using the SSL 2.0 & 3.0 but no success.
Any suggestions ?

Hi,

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64 and IE11. I often get a situation while browsing where I click on a link to read an article and the page comes up blank with the text: This page can't be displayed.

This condition seems to happen randomly. I usually have several tabs open. Once IE11 starts doing this, the majority of tabs produce the same blank page. I even opened a new tab and clicked on Google where the same thing happened.

The solution is to close IE11 and restart IE11. I've tried other solutions such as a complete IE11 reset, but that doesn't cure the issue.

Is there a fix for this condition?

I cannot figure out how to set the IE11 in Win 8.1 to only print a web page in Black and White. In Win 7 I had found it but with great difficulty and I believe it was in Internet tools if you drill down far enough. In Win 8.1 I cannot find it so that when printing out a web page that has red and blue it is almost impossible to read on my Dell 1700 monochrome laser. I tried in the Devices and Printers, Dell, both Printer preferences and printer properties but cannot find anywhere to set. I am fairly certain it is a setting that has to be made in Internet Explorer but they seem to have hidden it (I think I was using IE9 or IE10 in Win 7). In Excel you can set that parameter for each page in page setup.

Any ideas where to look?
