Ie11 suggested sites

Q: Ie11 suggested sites

Another day, another pointless and waste of my life ie11 problem.
What is it today? enterprise mode? Activex? nope, suggested sites.
Tell me why every user has 100s of suggested site links adding to their favourites bar? Also why are all of them empty. Just 100s of empty favourites called suggested sites.


How does this software get released.
This is the same in windows 10 as well, so don't come with that non sense about it being a windows 7 problem.

At least in windows 10 ie11 doesn't need 10 broken prerequsties and another 10 cumulative updates before it works correctly.

Preferred Solution: Ie11 suggested sites

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.)

Hello !! Welcome to SF !!

I guess the IE is messed up resulting this behaviour. The best thing to do would be to reset IE to default settings then try to turn off suggested sites might fix it.

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
***EDIT***
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?

A:How can I disable Suggested Sites feature in IE 10?

How can search from the address bar be disabled?

In the Manage Add-ons Search Providers dialog you could disable Search Suggestions for your default search provider and optionally uncheck:  Search from the Address bar.   Related to this from the Options Contents tab you could
navigate to Autocomplete Settings and uncheck Use AutoComplete for Address bar.   I think it is probably Search Suggestions that is bothering you the most but you might not be liking the AutoComplete for Address bar feature too.  Otherwise
I think disabling Search from the Address bar means that you can't use the IE search feature at all, even trying an explicit question mark space (? ) prefix, which I think is more drastic than one might expect.  Disabling Search from the
Address bar also has the quirky effect of forcing the feature of allowing single-word Intranet names to be used without a protocol prefix, which is otherwise needed to bypass the user's default search provider when such connections are slow.

I am running windows xp pro sp3 with IE8. I have tried everything to try and remove the Bing browser and it keeps returning no matter what I do.
Does anyone have a fix for this.
Thanks in advance.

A:how to permanently remove Bing and Suggested Sites

EDIT: I just remembered something where you may not have to do any of the below. I never use IE so it slipped my mind. Go into IE's options, programs, manage add-ons. Right click any crap you see there and remove it if possible or disable it if removing is not an option. I would still go to add or remove programs and see if there's any crap there.
 
Well, try going into add or remove programs and uninstall IE8 and any other entry with Bing or MSN. You will have to reboot afterwards and will be back to IE6. Download Internet Explorer 8 and install it. This is the original version without all that crap. When installing, have it download updates. When finished you will be asked to reboot. Go to Windows Update and run a scan to make sure everything is up to date.
 
To disable suggested sites, first back up your registry by following the instructions below.
 
Please visit http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/, download and install/unzip ERUNT. Run ERUNT, click OK at the Welcome dialog, accept the default values that are pre-filled in and pre-checked, click OK, click yes and OK when it's done.
To restore the backup at a later date, navigate to the ERDNT folder in your Windows directory, open the folder with the date you want to restore from and then click ERDNT.EXE. It will restore your registry but it needs to reboot to do so. When it asks you to do so, click yes.
 
Once you've backed up the registry, merge the attached reg file by double clicking ... Read more

When I go to some sites there are a number of blurred images.

The sidebar images and the images at the bottom from Sky/and the spam promoted stories are not affected. This is on every story on the SKY News site and some others. Any Story on this page. if I click on it, it is the same.

I have changed everything back to its defaults in IE and stopped any addons, emptied caches etc. but nothing helps. It does not happen in Edge or Chrome. As to when this started - I am fairly certain that it was the updates before the Anniversary update. It was happening on some other sites, but I cannot find them just now ( I visited them as a result of searches etc.).

Hi there.

In my old age it seems IE11 is getting harder and harder to read properly -- never really noticed until I started using KONQUEROR browser (Open suse / Linux Mint on KDE).

I'm getting older now and need larger fonts -- especially on Laptop screens -- looking at the SAME website (BBC London) on an HP sleekbook with a14 inch screen I know which is easier to read -- and while I can adjust a bit of text the menus don't seem to get very much enlarged in IE11, Also increasing the text size in IE11 starts rendering the website a bit crazily with bits appearing in the wrong place.

(@ any website developrs --please get some of the over 45's to read your work -- some IT people I know always seem have HUGE screens with REALLY TINY fonts on them so their eyesight is obviously at a different level to ours !!)

Hey All,

I created this thread that can hopefully serve as a FAQ about these new features of IE 8, how they work, how they are the same and different. I have modified my Favorites Bar to remove the Suggested Sites icon, because I personally don't care to have recommended sites downloaded when IE is not running and IE 8 gives an "Are you sure?" as to whether or not you want to turn "Suggested Sites On." I am just learning the +'s and -'s of these new features.

I have encountered an issue where my pinned sites (I have several on the task bar) are opening minimized. Up until this behavior started they were opening maximized.

Another strange behavior is that my IE11 shortcut on the task bar ignores the shortcut settings to open IE11 maximized and always opens IE11 in a window.

I can trace the behavior back to right after my IE11 was updated with KB3124275.

IE11 version: 11.0.9600.18163
Update Versions: 11.0.27 (KB3124275)

I have searched here and elsewhere looking for some insight on this and found nothing. I have tried closing all other programs, opening IE11, maximizing and closing and nada. I would appreciate any insight.

Hi all,
the current cumulative update KB3161608 blocks older HTTPS sites on IE11, which are not having current TLS/Keylength/Ciphers standards.
This may be reasonable for the Internet, but in our company's intranet it's a desaster, as older programs/applications we are connecting to cannot simply get updated (e.g. Dell DRAC access on older server).
Now we only get a "This page can't be displayed" error.

Two questions:
1. Is this a bug or planned behaviour?
2. Does anyone know what we can do to restore the ability to connect to these sites per IE11 (with KB3161608 installed)?

Hi there
some of you using IE11 might find that certain sites now find you can't get to the web page for specific sites --particularly things like LOCAL sites -- I have a Music server which needs to access local host (127.0.0.1:9000).

What you now need to do is either turn off security enhanced mode in the security settings in the browser or (better) add these sites to the trusted sites also in the security settings.

For those testing Windows 8 with IE10 - you *might* not have to do this immediately but if you start getting "Site cannot be displayed" type of messages after various windows updates then change the settings as in the post (also for IE10 in Windows 7 if you get the same problem).

Just running in compatibility mode or trying to disable ipv6 as suggested on a lot of sites DOESN'T FIX THE PROBLEM. Just add to trusted sites or disable enhanced security (only do that as a last resort).

Hi all - hoping someone can help with this unusual problem. I have looked all day, but found nothing on this forum or any other web sites/forums about this problem.

I have a Samsung ML1860 Laser printer via USB. Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. IE11. I was adding a site to my trusted sites list, when I noticed that for some reason www.samsungsetup.com was included in my trusted sites list. I also noticed that the trusted sites settings were changed - the security level setting was changed to 'LOW', and the 'Enable Protected Mode' was deleted, and the 'require server verification' (HTTPS) setting was also deleted.

I removed samsungsetup.com from the trusted sites list and changed all the settings back to normal. But a few days later when I next checked the trusted sites, it had all been changed back.

I again removed samsungsetup.com from the list and changed all the settings back to normal. I then removed the Samsung printer software and drivers (that Windows update had installed) and disabled and removed the printer. I then used the computer as normal and checked again a few times each day - the trusted settings remained as I had set them at the normal/default levels.

After a few re-installs and removals and tests and checks, I have established that once the Samsung printer software or drivers are installed - whether by windows at startup or by downloading from Samsung - as soon as I print anything on the printer, the software changes the IE settings in the trusted si...

Hello,
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 170.209.0.2 and 170.209.0.3 (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

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

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

A: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!

A: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.

(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">
    <emie>
          <domain exclude="false">www.contoso.com</domain>
    </emie>
</rules>

Etc.
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">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
  </site>
</site-list>

Or am I missing something here?

1. I have two JSP files like "one.jsp" and "two.jsp" 
2. I have two muti select boxes like ACCOUNTS and FUCNTIONS In one.jsp. These two multi select boxes are getting loaded from two.jsp by using the frame like below.
var lsCombo = parent.MainFrame.document.dataframe.accountSelectBoxName.options;
lsCombo[0] = new Option("key","value");
lsCombo[1] = new Option("key","value");

var lsCombo = parent.MainFrame.document.dataframe.fucntionSelectBoxName.options;
lsCombo[0] = new Option("key","value");
lsCombo[1] = new Option("key","value");

3. Now those two box values are loaded. 
4. I am trying to retreive the option values using javascript like below,

fucntionSelectBoxName.options[0].value - Now I am able to retreive the value
accountSelectBoxName.options[0].value - Now I can't retreive the value and getting error like permission denied.

5. Here, I understood that, only lastly loaded frame is an active mode and which is pointing to respective parent frame.
But first loaded frames are not in an active mode and which are not pointing to respective parent frame.

Thanks in advance

I noticed that my firewall settings were set to OPEN/ALWAYS/EVERYONE (essentially).  I thought, "That can't be right...that's not safe at all",
So I disabled/blocked about half of my incoming rules.   Which was immediately changed back by an unscheduled update less than an hour later.
I made screen shots of my firewall settings.  *Windows Remote Management is set to YES  PUBLIC ALLOW  SYSTEM  ANY TCP and ANY /ANY /ANY.
Peer to peer collaboration has the same settings, specifying %System...% as the part of my PC that is open to the public.  (And yes, I'm sure these are the default settings, I wiped and reinstalled offline. If you close or block your ports, they will
be overridden in minutes (including the ones marked "No Override". 

I downloaded Spybot 2.5 which detected backdoor knocking on SAM, and attempts to logon without a password.  Defender did not have a problem, as elevated permissions, impersonation, persistent logon attempts using alternate credentials is business as
usual for WIN 10.
Further, all of the choices I was given regarding how  to receive updates/reboot times/and which apps can access my personal data (pictures/docs  -  webcam/mic) are set to "**** yeah!"
So, basically, Windows 10 is a GYN is the front, and a back port Proctologist.
Anyone else think this odd?
Is there a solution...or...?

My PC has been freezing. Before you yell at me this is what I've tried.
?Checked hardware, no yellow ! marks
?Checked memory...all 6 scans 2 passes...nada.
?Checked drivers...diagnostic came up empty handed
?turned off startups...disabled windows services...nothing
?Defraged, disc cleanup, reverted to an earlier state for windows...none helped
?attempted to change Anti Virus Programs since Avira & Mcafee caught nothing...
now I can't install AVG because Mcafee is still present somehow...although
I couldn't uninstall it the traditional way...I googled and found links from threads that led
me to the uninstall tool...which I ran and rebooted...it's no longer in the uninstall options..but
AVG still says it can't Install because of McAfee.

I'm basically posting this now..because I don't see any fixes different than the ones I've already tried.
Can anyone help. I did go through some of the rules and if I broke any of them in this post...I appologize. I'm in safe mode now and my screen size sucks typing this too. Thanks. I'm glad
I was able to get this typed before my PC froze again.
Windows XP, Dell Vostro 410, had it for about 2 years. It's my shop pc...I own a sign shop...this is my
backbone for now. HELP

A:Suggested Hjt Log

Hello healing41 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

Fragmentation isn't really a malware issue. It is just a natural occurance that happens over time. XP has a built-in defragmenter and there are many 3rd party disk-defragmenters. It is good to defragment a drive occasionally but unless the disk is heavily fragmented and the free disk space is less than about 10% of the drive there will probably not be a noticible performance improvement. The 2 files that will have the biggest impact from fragmentation are the swap file and the Master File Table which can only be defragmented with 3rd party defragers. NTFS file systems handle file fragmentation better than the old FAT system found on older operating systems like Win98 so an acasional defrag with the built-in XP utility should be Ok.

Cheers.

I have the Inspiron 3520 with i3-2350M processor. I am currently using a single 8gb DDR3L stick in this machine that was originally bought for another laptop, but it seems fine. Would there be any issue with buying the matching stick and upgrading to 16gb? Are there known issues using low voltage ram in this machine instead of the stock? Thanks.
