Windows 7: IE9 - does not open file when I say "Open"

IE9 - does not open file when I say "Open"

I reset all the IE settings to default and I seem to be getting this problem after I reverted back to IE 9 since IE 10 and 11 did not fully work. The updates installed successfully but when I opened the browser, it immediately exited without any error. no errors in eventlog or anything.

so I reverted back to IE9 and all works except this...

when I download a file, I get prompted to either save or open. if I hit open, the file does NOT open - even a simple word document. I have to save it, go to that location and open it manually.

any ideas why and how I can "fix" this?

See what this does,
Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer

Click on the suggestion (No Add-ons) or itís located at,
Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.

If using ie10 the first link will apply to ie9 as well,

Using ie9 you can use the 64 bit version if your machine is 64 bit,
Where did ie 64 bit version go in ie10 or 11,

hi.

so I tried IE without add ons and still the same problem.
I also run 64bit version of IE all the time. Running 32 bit version still gives me the same problem as does the 64bit version.

anymore ideas?

Yes please use the Fill in your system spec's link above my signature picture,
Also include which security suite you have install,
There's also a link to how to upload screen shots which please use it as well,
Post some screen shots of your Show all add-ons pages,

Also use Clean boot,
using start and type msconfig into the search box post a screen shot of your Startup section,

I have filled out the system specs.
I have symantec small business edition installed as AV however remember that even disabling it still has no effect to the problem and it was always working before I installed IE11 for years...

screenshot of current/all plugins:



cleanboot: same problem
FYI: even tried a new user profile account....same problem

There's one Unavailable add-on that is Enabled = Disable it,
Go to Uninstall a program and take more screen shots please,
Some of these add-ons look odd to me anyway ?
Cheers,
You do have a 64 bit system so you can activate EPM with the link in my first reply.

If you have IE9 installed, you can forget about EPM. It is in IE10 and IE11.
