Weird IE10 Problem, freezes on startup.

Recommended Posts

I have a win 7 64 bit machine and a funny problem.

 

When you start IE10 it pops up and just sits there as if frozen, if I hit the start button then IE comes to life but will randomly freeze up during operation unless I hit the start button again. Firefox and other programs all work OK, machine if virus free.

Any ideas?

 

Have tried clearing all IE data and doing a reset.

 

Cheers

Start IE without addons and see what happens.

Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Internet Explorer (no addons).

If it behaves itself in no addons mode then go to tools > manage addons and disable anything suss or odd in toolbars and extensions, search providers, accelerators and tracking protection.

Already tired that (I forgot to mention it) made no diff.

Damn, what webpage is set to the home page? I have found that IE will often freeze on load upif the home page is the dreaded ninemsn. Something to do with loading all the interactive content I think.

Checked for Shockwave, flash, air and java updates?

Tried disabling the antivirus temporarily?

Cheers,

 

I'll check and get back to you. Someone else reported the same problem last week now that I think of it but I have seen that machine yet.

Another thing to try:

 

Control Panel -> Internet Options

Advanced Tab

Click the button "Reset"

 

This defaults IE10 back to complete default.

Haven't had a chance to get back to the machine yet but I'll update the thread if I figure it out.
