Problems with Internet explorer following latest WX upgrade

Q: Problems with Internet explorer following latest WX upgrade

2 days ago my husband was using the computer when a Windows upgrade popped up. He installed it. At the end of installation, a message said that Internet Explorer was not currently installed as default browser, and did we want to install it? We think he clicked No. (sorry to be vague about this). When we next tried to get onto the Web, we had a completely new home page, almost entirely blank. It does not respond to any commands; sometimes it actually freezes, but usually it is just so slow that essentially nothing happens, and it stops us using any other programmes. I noticed in task manager that it seems to be using a huge amount of memory. We can get into a workable version by going into Applications:System tools: Internet Explorer without add-ons, but we can't use any music programmes or run video/music clips. The three upgrades/patches we installed were Update for Windows XP KB904942, Hotfix for Windows XP KB914440 and Security update for Windows XP KB920213. Can anyone tell us what has happened, and what to do about it? Thanks very much, Angela

Preferred Solution: Problems with Internet explorer following latest WX upgrade

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.)

A: Problems with Internet explorer following latest WX upgrade

Hi Angela

Does the new IE icon have a golden orbit around a blue letter e? If so, it sounds like one of the updates may have been IE7. Something on your system might conflict with it, or perhaps something went wrong during the installation. You can try uninstalling the last three hotfixes, then reverting to IE6 SP1 - and see if things are better. If still problematic, try a System Restore using a restore point from just before you installed IE7.

Also run thorough scans for malware infections - these can slow your Internet dramatically. Depending on what the screen looked like, it could have been a malware "scam" or "Phishing" exploit that generated the official-looking window. If you find you have a serious infection, try the 5-Step Security Checklist --- http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...kthis-log.html

Also, if you revert to IE6, visit Windows Update again - manually - and make sure the patches are up-to-date.

Best of luck

Prior to the IE upgrade from 8 to 11 we could collate documents, now we can't on certain HP laser jet printers. The option to collate is still there and can still be selected, it's just ignored.  Only observed this collating problem on HP LJ 1606
and M201dw printers. No problems collating on older or new HP printers. I've tried contacting HP tech support but they say it's an IE problem.  I think it may have something to do with an Add-on called MeadCo Script X but trying the latest version
of that add-on downloaded from their website didn't resolve the problem.

Okay here's the deal;
I have seven of these to set up for users here at work, and we have several applications that need to be preconfigured and standardized for users. Thus the boot into Audit Mode for setup and Sysprepping with "CopyProfile=True" in my xml file.

First two bombed and Microsoft Support has been no help. Their suggestion is that I return it to the point of purchase as defective. I'll skip the obvious rant and move on.

First symptom that reared its ugly head was that accounts that log in after the latest version update are flawed in that the Start Menu doesn't work and there's no context menu on icons in the taskbar. I haven't dug any deeper for symptoms.

Second symptom, which came up after a fresh image downloaded from Microsoft was freezing during SysPrep, but on this attempt I installed all the updates before I sysprepped instead of after.

The second Surface exhibited the same symptoms as the first. It was SysPrepped, then updated.

I know the short answer is either "don't upgrade" or "don't sysprep" but neither of those are viable options. I can (I think) block the upgrade from happening, but that's not really what I want to do. Not SysPrepping means I'm going to be holding a LOT of hands helping users configure their profiles and hunting down applications, not something I have time for.

Any ideas or suggestions appreciated. Also, if I've missed something, just ask. I'll flag this thread for notificat... Read more

UPDATE;
For anyone following the thread; I can disable the version update by checking the "Defer Upgrades" box in Windows Update - Advanced.
Not really a solution, but a workaround that will have to do for now.

If anything further develops, I'll pass it along.

Hi all - again!

I installed the latest update to Zone Alarm today, only to find that IE8 had lost all it's toolbars along the top, (file, edit, etc.,) deleted all the text labels on my links and to add insult to injury, turned all the Explorer bars along the top black! I couldn't see anything!
Luckily I'd set a system retore point and went back to the original Zone Alarm, but that wouldn't work - I think because System Restore had had to re-name some of the files. Of course, I'd got a little red shield in the tray because there wasn't a firewall turned on, so now I've got the Windows Firewall on!
Anyway, I decided to completely uninstall Zone Alarm with Revo Uninstaller and go with the built-in one. Might as well I suppose. The trouble with Zone Alarm now, is you have to opt for the 'Custom' installation, or you get the 'Ask' Toolbar dumped into IE (Why???) and I reckon, in opting NOT to have this, IE's settings got all mucked about with!
Has anybody else suffered the same thing - and - is Windows Firewall OK?

Windows Explorer is not working. That is, Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer. It seemed like every forum I already checked this confused people.

Here are the things I have tried, and the things that I am incapable of trying, and why:

2.) I tried booting with only the bare necessities through System Configuration (msconfig) by selecting Diagnostic Startup, but the problem still occurred when I would boot to my desktop.

3.) I tried doing a system restore to 3 days ago, before the problem ever occurred, but it simply didn't seem to take, as some software I installed just last night was still here when it booted. That was a weird one.

4.) I tried rebooting with a chkdsk /r, but I could not get this to work because in order to set that up, you need to be able to run the command prompt with administrative privileges, which I cannot because Windows Explorer is not working.

What is the story with Windows 7 and trying to upgrade Internet Explorer to the current version? I had everything tweaked very nicely recently. Running Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit, Internet Explorer 11. Then I got nailed with a virus or spyware or malware (Fake Video Player-OH GOD) and spent the better part of 3 days getting rid of it. I'm finally up and running, somewhat (still seems very slow and startup and shutdown are noticeabley slow) but noticed that IE was version 8. Downloaded IE11 and tried to install it at least 6 times but it always failed. Somehow or another, I was able to upgrade to IE9, which then allowed me to upgrade to IE10. But IE10 was non responsive every time. So I removed the IE10 update and and running IE9. Only problem is every time I go to Gmail, I am told this browser is not supported. When I click on the "Upgrade Browser" button, it takes me to the "Download IE11" fiasco again and I will not go through that route any more without some guidance. WHAT THE HELL IS THE STORY WITH MICROSOFT THAT THEY MAKE WINDOWS7 AND IE, WHICH, TO ME, ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME, SO DAMN INCOMPATABLE? Can anyone tell me how to upgrade Windows7 Professional, 64 bit to IE11, or at least a version of IE10 that actually works? Please? Thanks in advance

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with Internet Explorer 10. Websites are telling me I must upgrade to Version 11. I did that several months ago and had major problems, so I went back to 10.

So, I have to try again. What website should I go to to get a good download of IE 11?

Thanks, cb

Hi All,

This questions has been asked 1000 times, but nothing I've read and tried works to upgrade to IE 11.  We have approx. 30 HP laptops that cannot install/upgrade to IE 11.  This includes upgrading to IE 10 as well.  Will not install on
either Win 7 x64 or x86.

Installation gets to the end, but fails with "Install could not be finished".

Errors Codes: 9c47 and 9c59

I have tried the following.

- Ran the Win 7 Readiness Tool for x86 and x64
- Tried removal of any existing IE packages with DISM.  Access Denied.
- Shut off and removed antivirus protection
- Clean-boot, then attempt to install.
- Looked at IE install logs.  Nothing stood out.
- Upgrade or install IE 11 via, download quick installer, full installation, Windows Updates and WSUS.  Originally sent out via WSUS.
- Updated laptop video driver.  Sounds weird but actually was able to see a notice saying, "...the following programs need to be shutdown...", with a list of programs to close.  Not viewable before updating the video
driver.
- sfc /scannow
- Reset Software Distribution folder
- Started win installer, win module installer, and win updates services.  Ran install and got same failure.

Rebuilding one of our laptops takes 2-3 days due to drive encryption requirements and specialized software needs to be installed manually by each user.

Anything else I can check? 

Thanks,

Vince
