IE11 treating all website sites as being in the intranet zone, and running in compatibility mode.

Q: IE11 treating all website sites as being in the intranet zone, and running in compatibility mode.


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.

Preferred Solution: IE11 treating all website sites as being in the intranet zone, and running in compatibility mode.

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 am having a lot of hard time. I have a cloned virtual machines and on one of the VM, IE11 is not detecting any of the internal sites in Intranet zone, while other machines are detecting internal site as Intranet. I have checked almost everything like NIC
config, VM config, IE related registry settings, IE options, GPO, installed programs and patches etc. All these things are exactly the same on other VMs where internal sites are getting detected correctly.
OS- Windows server 2012 R2
Hyper visor- Vmware

Please help me move in right direction, I am out of options now

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 ?

Hi, i am looking for a policy that will allow me to uncheck 'display intranet sites in compatibility view' without graying out the option to recheck it if a user needs the option in the future. So far the only option i found under Computer

Please note all testing has been done on Windows 10 1709 and 1803.
We are a financial institution and have the need to set compatibility view mode for The Federal Reserve.  The sites are and (they are only accessible at a Financial institution with a Federal Reserve VPN router).  
We've tried a login script method via Desktop Authority to set this registry key and we've also tried GPO to set this registry key.  The key is HKU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData\UserFilter.  Desktop Authority
sets the key without issue.  GPO does not, so for this case we will continue to use Desktop Authority to set the key at login (or by running the login script out of the NETLOGON share).
Upon initial logon this is working as we check the Compatibility View Settings under IE11's Gear menu.  We see these two sites plus 10 others.  The site list was created on one machine and then exported as a reg key.  I run process explorer
and filter on Operation is RegSetValue and path contains UserFilter.  I see our Desktop Authority login script correctly set this key, and its 518 bytes long.  I launch IE and the sites are all there.  But then at some point usually a minute

As the title states, we're having issues with the our sites.xml file being locked somehow, preventing anyone from actually editing the file to make changes. The file is located on a network share, and we've nearly exhaust efforts in attempting to figure
out what exactly is locking this file. It's not the virus scanner, and it doesn't appear to be the clients (nothing is attempting to open the file with write access, as far as we can tell).
Has anyone encountered anything like this before with IEEM? If so, can you point me in the right direction?

We have had an issue whereby sites explicitly listed in our Trusted Sites in IE11 where still being rendered in compatibility mode. Some network traces show the user-agent string being sent include MSIE7 7.0 and hence this makes sense. So it seems the browser
is putting the site into compatibility mode. Digging around on the web we found this for IE8:

Compatibility View is used for Trusted sites in Internet Explorer 8
So it seems that this still applied for IE11. Now, we can work around by tweaking the options for automatic placement of sites into the intranet zone but we don't want to do that as there are modified security settings in the zones and we need to keep sites
in their zone assignments. 
So, I have a couple of questions:

This only seems to affect compatibility view and from a security zone perspective, the trusted site settings still appear to apply. Is this assumption correct i.e. explicit listing in a zone wins from a zone assignment perspective but compatibility view
decision logic is differentHow does enterprise mode tie into this? Is Enterprise mode site list checked first then the normal logic applied?

We are testing Windows 10 1703 prior to rolling it out to our estate and have come across an issue with Internet Explorer Site Zoning and just wondering if anyone else has seen the issue.
So on Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10, 1511 and 1607 using IE11. We have a SharePoint intranet site setup on intranet.example.co.uk. We use a proxy so we have a list of sites that by pass the proxy so for example we have *.example.co.uk in the bypass
proxy exceptions. On the above clients OS we browse to the site in IE and it loads, checking the zone it has picked it up as 'Local Intranet' so seems to use the 'Automatic logon on in Intranet Zone' setting. - all good.
Just for clarity these settings are same in IE on all versions. as are the default security options.

When we do the same thing on Windows 10 1703 it results in the user being prompted for credentials. the same proxy exceptions settings are applied as above. Entering the username/password allows access to the site. Checking the zone and the site is
being seen as an 'internet site'. This issue also appears in Chrome and Edge and only on Windows 10 1703
Adding intranet.example.co.uk to the bypass list makes no difference either, the only thing that does work is by adding intranet.example.co.uk into the Local Intranet Zone sites list - again all other settings are the same as above and work on
previous versions of Windows.

Under Internet Options > Security > Local Intranet > Sites ? there is an option to automatically detect intranet sites.
How does this work? Because it doesn't seem to work.  It will not automatically detect that one of our internal websites is an internal website.  I assume that it is supposed to do what it says it does.
Do I need to do something in DNS? 
The only way I can get the browser to see that this site is an intranet site (for integrated authentication purposes) is to manually add the domain to the list of intranet sites, which completely defeats the point of any option like "automatically detect".
So how do I get it to work?

A:Automatically Detect Intranet Zone


Managing zones for Internet Explorer can be done using the following setting: Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page\Site to Zone Assignment List.

The Site to Zone Assignment List policy setting allows you to manage a list of sites that you want to associate with a particular security zone. There are zone numbers which have associated security settings that apply to all of the sites in the zone.

The Site to Zone Assignment List policy setting associates sites to zones, using the following values for the Internet Security zones: (1) Intranet zone, (2) Trusted Sites zone, (3) Internet zone, and (4) Restricted Sites zone. If you set this policy setting
to Enabled, you can enter a list of sites and their related zone numbers. The association of a site with a zone ensures that the security settings for the specified zone are applied to the site. See the Explain text for this policy setting for more information.

If you configure the Site to Zone Assignment List policy setting for both Computer Configuration and User Configuration, both of these lists are used.

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.

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
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

I've installed Quicken 2004 on Windows 8.1 in compatibility mode for Windows XP 3 to run as administrator. Everything seems to work well. All my data appears to have been restored including Home Inventory. I can download bank data.
Automatic backup works. I tested this by changing the system date to trigger the backup.
The infuriating thing is I cannot do a manual backup from the file menu. The dialogue box opens. I can complete the relevant fields but when I click OK the program freezes. There are no error messages.
Not sure if this is a Windows issue e.g. permissions or Quicken issue e.g looking for a file that doesn't exist. I have checked the 'Ready for archive' box of the folders, sub-folders, and files property boxes.
Are there any settings in Win 8.1 that I need to change to allow a program to write to a drive when it is running in compatibility mode for Windows XP 3 as administrator?

EDIT: I'm an idiot. I have no idea how I ended up replying to this topic when this post was meant for another one. Wow... just wow... I guess you now know how to do a back up in Windows 8.1 now though, am I right?

Original Post:

Are you looking for a way to create a full back up of your current state of Windows, including all your files and settings? If so, create a System Image instead.
Press the Windows Key, and type Powershell.Right click Windows PowerShell, and select 'Run As Administrator'.Copy this
wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:X: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet
Paste by right clicking into the Powershell window.Change the drive letter 'X' from what you copied to the driver you want to make a back up to.Press Enter/Return.

And that's it! Let it run until it is done. It should also back up your recovery partition and other partitions on the same drive too.

Here is how to use the backup image.
Make sure the backup drive is connected.
Press the Windows Key + C.
Highlight and select Settings.
Select Change PC settings.
Select Update and recovery.
Select Recovery.
Select Advanced start-up which will reboot your PC.
From this menu, select Troubleshooting.
Select Advanced options.
Select System Image Recovery.
After this, just follow the on screen steps. It's pretty easy. It should automatically detect the image folder from the drive.

I have a Kensington Trackball (the original grey square 4 button model) which works great and which I absolutely love. I have had it about 10 years now and it still works perfectly fine. Kensington got a lot of grief (and rightly so) for not providing driver support when migrating it from Windows XP to Vista. That?s a whole other issue however. After some experimenting, I discovered that if I used Kensington Mouseworks 6.2.2 installed natively under Vista Home Premium SP2, my trackball would work perfectly.

Mouseworks 6.2.2 under Vista recognizes the Trackball as exactly what it is and provides me with all of the capabilities and button mapping and programming for the device that I could want and need. I have used it for years that way.

I would like to migrate it to my Windows 7 system now and here is where I am having the problem. If I install Mouseworks natively under Win 7 and with the Trackball attached, Mouseworks only recognizes Trackball as an ordinary mouse and provides none of the software capabilities that it did under Vista. That didn?t really surprise me however because of the changes from Vista to Win 7.

I figured that I could re-install Mouseworks in Vista compatibility mode in Win 7 and it would work once again as it did on my Vista system. When I did that however, there was no difference in the way Mouseworks operated regardless of whether it was installed natively on Win 7 or installed in Vista Compatibility mode.

I have been having a problem for the last several months with my computer that I believe started when my nephews tried to install a game on my computer. About 75% of the time when i boot my computer I get the message Compatibility-mode paging reduces overall system performance under the system properties performance tab. under that message both c and d drives are listed as running in ms dos compatibility mode file system. At the same time under the device manager tab i see that I have a yellow exclamation point over my primary IDE controller (dual fifo). when i have these error messages the entire system seems to run very slow but it always remains usable. Sometimes when I boot I get none of these errors and the system performs normally. I have searched and read many threads from the Tech Support Guy forums and I realize this is a difficult error to fix. I have checked my registry and have never found a "noide" value in it.

I was wondering if there is a way to set up MS IIS to allow there to be a website and a intranet site on the same server.

I ask this because I now have two servers running. One for the intranet and one for the website. I want people from the outside to be able to access the website, but not the intranet and people from the inside able to access both.

Someone please help me out here as I am not to familiar with MS IIS.

Thank you

I can not consistently load pages using IE8 on my local intranet. I never receive a "page not found" error. You just get a "wait for..." message in the progress bar and nothing ever happens.

This only affects my PC. All other PCs in the network load the pages without issue.

I do develop web applications on this PC, so not sure it software or settings on my PC are preventing a consistent load.

Any help is appreciated.

I setup a GPO that uses a global sites list for enterprise mode for our domain.  The first time we all launched IE it went and got the list and everything looks good.  Since then I've added 3 extra sites to the enterprise sites list, but none of
the clients seem like they are re-checking the list to see if its been updated because the new sites I added aren't showing up in enterprise mode, only the original ones I first added.  If I open the sites list it shows the xml version is still 1 but
the rules version is 4.  I read online the browser doesn't check for a new sites list until 65 seconds after its been open, but its been like 7 hours and it still hasn't updated.  Anything I could check?  Thanks
I checked the registry entry for the enterprise mode and it shows the correct version number as 4.  I cleared my temporary internet files and it finally went out and got a new one.  But I don't want my users to have to clear their cache any time
the site list is updated.  Anyone know a solution to this?

I'm not sure that anyone can help me with this problem but I'd like to ask.


IBM Thinkpad T22 Laptop
Windows 2000 Professional

A user at our company connects to an internal intranet website. The web server is located in the US (we are in the UK) and so its a bit slow but ok.

When he gets to a certain site he clicks a link that should open an Excel document. He clicks the link and his pc appears to freeze up. I checked task manager and IE is still running, cpu usage is around 3%. If you wait for 8 minutes (timed it a few times) the document opens up fine.

I logged the user off and logged on as myself. I accessed the link and the document opend up with 10 seconds!

Things I have tried:

1. Ran an IE browser repair.
2. Rebuilt the users Windows 2000 Profile.
3. Deleted Temp Internet Files including Index.dat
4. Detect and Reapir in Excel (just in case!)

Its not a major problem but the document should open up in about 10-15 seconds instead of 8 minutes.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

I have, what seems to me, a strange problem. The company I work for uses sharepoint for our intranet sites (no, this is not a sharepoint question) and we have recently upgraded to a new version. When we upgraded, the site now needs to be added to the local
intranet site list in order for it to automatically receive windows log in credentials and log users in to SharePoint. This is a simple fix, I have done it on dozens of machines, but on a select few the fix doesn't seem to work. Whenever I add a website to
the intranet sites list, it acts as if it was added... then as soon as I close the dialog box that is used to enter and display this info, it's gone, and by gone I mean I open back up the box and it has disappeared from the list. There is no trace of me ever
having changed a setting. There are currently no GPOs active that would cause these to be taken out of the list, I have tried adding the sites directly into the registry and they disappear there too, I'm not sure if this is the right place for my question
but I figure it's a start. So again:
Problem: Sites do not stay in proper security zone, all traces of them existing are erased on closing of dialog box.

Troubleshooting Done so Far: Tried directly placing in registry, no fix. No GPO's are active to remove said sites from zones.

A:IE 11 - Intranet sites added to list do not stay

"but on a select few the fix doesn't seem to work"
Confused with this sentence, does this issue only occur in a specific PC\user account?
Have you tried the suggestion mentioned in the your original thread to reset IE, test the result?
What about other security zones, like Internet or trusted zone? Are there any other websites under the Intranet zone? Though you mentioned that these's no GPO applied to control this, I still recommend you run cmd rsop to check the settings applied
on this machine and user account.

I am getting error while opening Intranet website and not able to expand all it's menu options. It is working fine in IE6 . I have tried compatibility view in IE8 but still those menu options are not accessible.

A:Getting error when opening Intranet Website in Internet Explorer 8

Looks like a programming error on their web site. Try FireFox that may work until they fix the site and you can also report the error to them.

Zone A acted as firewall. Zone A quit running except in name only after BSOD and subsequent recovery. It slowed the system to a crawl (but said "you are protected")

I removed Zone and added AVG. Also use MS firewall. System works pretty good now.

Anyone have an idea as to why?

I enjoy playing Hearts and Spades on the MSN Game Zone.
However with IE11 on Windows 8.1 there are ongoing problems in connecting to these games.
One has to jump through a series of hoops in IE11 to get these games to function. In addition it sometimes it two or three attempts to achieve any success.
Then after two or three days, or weeks, the problem resurfaces.
Does anyone know of a guaranteed method of making the games work and keeping them working on IE11?
Is the fault with IE11, Windows 8.1, or the MSN Game Zone?

A:Isuues with IE11 and MSN Game Zone on Windows 8.1

Not the fault of IE11, Windows 8.1, or the MSN Zone on this occasion.
Narrowed it down to a recent automatic update of aVast Internet Security.

Got a work around, but still waiting for a definitive solution.

Where I work a manager bought a /16 block of Public IP addresses and it's been used for everything in our network.

In a GPO it's set to prompt for Zone Elevation in the Local Intranet Zone part of settings.
With IE9 users never get a prompt when going from one intranet URL to the next.
But with IE11 they suddenly do. No GPO's altered (yet).
this blog I understand why it happens. And it makes sense when you use private addresses for your LAN.

Is there any way I can work around this?

This is IE11 / Windows 10 and Windows 7

For audit/security purposes, I'm currently investigating disabling downloading from the Internet Zone in our workplace.

This means that I assign sites to the Trusted Sites zone in order to allow downloading from them.

Some sites, when I click a link to download a file, start by downloading a 'Blob:1234123412341' file, which then fails to download what the blob is connecting to / requesting.

it seems to load the blob in the Internet Zone even though it was part of a link located on a site that is set as a Trusted Site and other files from that site download just fine.

How can I enable trusted site Blob downloads, but not ALL blobs from everywhere?

Thank you!

(NOTE:  Links open in a new tab.)
In the TechNet article
here I see reference to a schema v.2 for the EMIE tool. It will apparently spit out the xml using the new version 2 of the schema. But the download link only goes to downloads for Win7/8 (schema v.1), and I cannot find any reference to where I can obtain
the Windows 10 version.
For example,
this article specifically references a Windows 10 version, where
this one references Windows 7 and 8.  Finding the Windows 10 version has proven impossible so far.
We have several sites which need to be opened in IE instead of Edge, and using our old Enterprise Mode site list is not working on our Windows 10 clients.
Current site list example:
<rules version="4">
          <domain exclude="false">www.contoso.com</domain>

Reading about the
v.2 schema leads me to think that the output from the tool is incorrect.  The documentation suggests that the output for Windows 10 should be:

<site-list version="205">
  <site url="www.contoso.com">

Or am I missing something here?
