OK I updated my sys specs, but the new specs still show I am using IE 10, why is that? Everything else looks correct. Can you see the new info?

Thanks that's a lot better
You can see if the Intel site has a different/ more recent onboard graphic's driver available I'm sure it might be better than windows update one.
Which you can get from Intel or the computer manufactures website either one but Intel's might be a bit more recent
Cheers.

OK. Intel has a neat utility that I downloaded to check and update drivers, it did update my graphics driver. I will see if that helps with this problem, if it does, I will mark the problem resolved, else I will post further info. Thanks for your help.

Sad to say, the news is not good, but AFAICT it is also not caused by what we have been investigating here. Let me explain:

I continued to get freexe problems on web pages but it may be the website (Amazon). What happens is, if I open, in another tab, certain pages by selecting a link on a working page, like say a link to a book, the page opens in that separate tab but is totally unresponxive, and IE usuallu opens a notification bar at the bottom that states that the website is not respomnding and asks if I want to restart the page; doing so simply refreshes the page but it is still frozen. Most of the time I can just close the tab and revert to the web page that provided the link, but sometimes the whole IE freezes up and can only be closed by selecting close window in the command bar.

So I tried this same thjing in Firefox: opened Amazon, browsed for the book, then tried to open that link in another tab just like in IE. FF opened the tab and also had a page freeze BUT the FF browser after a few seconds displayed the following message:

" A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.
Script: <limk> "

Here is the link to the page where this happened, but it happens on most other books too:

Quantum Chance: Nonlocality, Teleportation and Other Quantum Marvels - Kindle edition by Nicolas Gisin, Alain Aspect. Professional & Technical Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

Fortunately the FF error message gave me options to continue, debug, or stop the script. Stopping the script unfroze the page and let me continue. IE 11 does not provide me any indicaztion of what the problem is, it just displays the status notification bar at the bottom of the page like I described above that asks if I want to retry the page.

So... I went to IE 11 and opened the IE Internet Options dialog, selected the Security tab, it is set to Internet zone, I then chose the custom level option in the dialog and used the list of settings to disable scripts. This worked, I could now open that web page and it would be active, but of course it prevented any scripts anywhere else from running.

So now I reset that security back to what it was, the problem returned, but it is only (apparently) on the Amazon website that thius happens, I can do this browsing on another website like B&N and all is normal.

So... here is my question: how can I set IE 11 so it displays such an error message, and set it such that, just like FF, it allows me to simply stop the script from running? I tried messing with ther Advanced settings for IE 11 on enabling error messages and debugging, but it did not allow me to stop the script, so I reverted to what it was. I am now wondering if this is some kind of compatibility issue?

I will take the problem to Amazon after I get this resolved for IE 11, you can be assured. But I know (hope) I will get this fixed with help here long before they do anything.

So again, thanks for your help and please continue to help on this. I vivt Amazon's website probably more than any other single website, so it is really a problem for me.

Aargh, I was afraid you'ld say that :=).

I love IE 10 too, and I also have not seen anything in IE 11 to make it worth all this!! Really, the only reason I upgraded to IE 11 was because of the announcement from Microsoft that in a short while it will no longer support IE 10 with patches or anything else, so it will basically be unprotected browsing.

Do you know if there is any way to get IE 11 to allow me to stop a script from running when it has errors? If not, I guess I will have to do what you suggest, and then go to Firefox after IE 10 dies.... because God knows how bad their **new** non-IE browser will be...

Thanks

Ie11 could be feeding off a bad cache or a bad compatibility view list item ?
If you want to try a few more things first get rid of comp view lists from Microsoft,
Open ie11 and use Alt+TB or gear symbol and Compatibility view settings,
Uncheck all items and close the little window.

Now Use Ctrl+Shift+Delete or Gear symbol/ Safety and Delete browser history,
Check all boxes except for the very top box Uncheck it,
If you use Form fills you can uncheck that item
Then click on Delete.
Save and close ie after and re-open and test.

Hmmm... maybe, but let me think about it.

I will probably just revert to IE 10 while I still have the restore point for it. I would not want to lose all my IE historical data, esp. the cookies. Besides, no guarantee that would help anyway. And I al;ways have Firefox for the future.

Thanks for your help on this. I will still get the new graphics driver back in after the restore, that is a big plus by itself. (I just pray that Amazon goes back to normal if I do go back to IE 10 :=) ).
