Windows 7: Updated IE 10 to IE 11 Now IE 11 freezes frequently

Updated IE 10 to IE 11 Now IE 11 freezes frequently

I just updated my Win 7 Pro from IE 10 to IE 11. Now I have frequent problems every browsing session where the IE 11 browser freezes up after I have opened and closed tabs a few times. It just stops responding, and sometimes if I wait a few minutes it will suddenly unfreeze but then freeze again after a minute or two of browsing using tabs.

When it locks up, I cannot even close it except with Task Manager, and sometimes that even stops working (CtlAltDel does nothing) and I have to use the Start menu to Resart the PC. I never had these problems with IE 10.

I recall installing IE 11 a long while back when IE 11 was first released, had the same problem, and uninstalled it via a sys restore and reverted to IE 10, ran fine. Am I going to have to do this again? Help, please...

Hi,
Try In-Private browsing to test and or No add-ons mode,
Stopped working is common for either a bad add-on or a security suite that is blocking if you use it's toolbar or password saving features/ lastpass....

Maybe working now

Thanks for the reply. I browsed some of the other threads on this topic, saw your suggestion to somebody else about setting the advanced option to use software rendering, set that option ON, now seems to be working better. I will try it some more for awhile, and if it is fixed I will close this thread as resolved. So thanks for the tip.

Hi,
Okay yep good searching
If it happens again go to Manage add-ons Show all add-ons/ Toolbars and extensions and take some screen shots
Uninstall Flash if you have it installed,
Cheers.

It still happens occasionally, but I can live with it. Seems to be related to opening/closing tabs too much. I couid do as you suggest and look at addinsa and flash, but that is not a solution, since I would not have to do that if I reverted to IE 10 where everything worked fine, and I do not want to close any of my addins or flash.

So I will not mark it resolved, and weill wait and hope somebody has some more info or fixes.

Thanks

Okay,
If software rendering helps then it seems a graphic's card driver issue might be cause.

There's been several updates for IE11. You might try a "Check for Updates" and see if any show up. Many times, the download versions lag way behind the updates.

I just had 3 updates to IE 11 installed on Sun nite autoupdate.

My graphics driver is up to date per Windows, no better driver available. (Again, if that was the problem, it would be an IE 11 problem that needs fixing, not a driver problem because it worked fine with IE 10).

I can upload or post a Belarc report on my whole system if that would help, but it would be rather lengthy as a post, I don't know if file uploads to ther forum are OK here even though the forum seems to indicate so.

Anyway, it seems to be working good enough I can live with it.

No, I had nopt seen that one, pretty cool. I downloaded it, works great. Let me read up on how to use it, I will then use it to upload my PC info. Thanks for the heads-up. I have lots of the Win7 tools like that, but I have not looked in awhile for new ones, will check them out later.
