Windows 7: IE10 - Freezes on Facebook

IE10 - Freezes on Facebook

Hi all,

I am no longer on Windows 7 but a friend of mine is. I suggested he update to IE10. After the update, everything worked OK except for Facebook. The page loaded correctly but when he scrolled to the bottom, it would freeze the program and eventually close. I had him start IE10 in safe mode and it still did it.

Any ideas?

He uninstalled IE10 for the time being. I didn't have problems in IE10 on Win8, but could they be that different?

Hello Nick,

You might see if using Compatibility View in IE10 for Facebook may help.

Hope this may help,
Shawn

I should have mentioned, we did try that. No change.

Try using software rendering instead of GPU rendering. To do that just got to internet options and on the advanced tab, click "use software rendering instead of GPU rendering." Restart IE and see if it still crashes.

I was wondering if it could be GPU drivers or something. It is an older system so there aren't any updates. Is this something IE10 does but IE9 didn't do?

IE 10 is a lot different from IE 9 under the hood. Microsoft might have optimized IE 10 with modern GPU making the older ones untested and buggy. It's just my hunch, but if your friend installs IE 10 again with software rendering and there's no crash, the GPU is the one at fault.

Computer freezes, unfreezes with single beep, only happens with IE10
I searched Google and found that this issue can mean anything from too much memory use to a nuclear bomb is about to go off inside the motherboard. I've replicated the problem (unwillingly) a few times and been able to narrow it down to Internet Explorer 10. About two months ago, I had...
