Windows 7: Weird experiences with IE10...

Weird experiences with IE10...

I had couple of weird experiences with IE10, nothing major, just things that don't make much sense.

Generally speaking, file downloads are initiated by the browsers and scanned by AV software prior to the end user accessing the file. Emphasis being on generally...

Initiated the download of the junkware removal tool, jre.exe here:

Junkware Removal Tool Download

When the download finished, IE10 gives the option of opening the folder, and doing so results in this error message:

Weird experiences with IE10...-jrt.jpg

Disabling MSE real-time protection doesn't help, it is still the same error message. Download the same file via Firefox, run the executable with MSE real-time protection enabled, and presto, the program runs just fine. Neither Windows 7, nor MSE blocked executing this program.

At times, IE10 might be detected as IE6, which I don't even remember when I used last. For example, opening this page at Palo Alto website:

Gives me this error:

Weird experiences with IE10...-ie6-ie10.jpg

While this could be on Palo Alto's server side detection engine and/or IE10's settings, nonetheless, it's weird.

Again, this is more of "weird" issue than problem from my perspective and can easily be remediated by using the other three browsers installed on my Windows 7 PC.

Maybe we should have a weird experiences with IE10 thread...

The red shield icon to the left of JRT in your first screenshot is probably IE's SmartScreen Filter.

I don't see the verbiage that you are seeing. I see what is shown in the two screenshots below when using IE9 or IE 10 (with and without MSE installed):

Please update your specs to tell us the flavor of W7 that you are running.

GPO settings are changing the wording from what you see in the post above to this:

Weird experiences with IE10...-smart-screen-filter3.png

Weird experiences with IE10...-smart-screen-filter4.png

Weird experiences with IE10...-smart-screen-filter5.png

To be clear, this has nothing to do with IE10. You should see the exact same behavior when using IE9 with SmartScreen Filtering turned on and the GPO setting highlighted above enabled.

As far as the other link that you posted. I do not have an account, so I cannot test or look at the source code for the webpage in question... but it sounds like they are simply behind in updating their webpages. If you visit this website: it should tell you what your IE10 is reporting to websites for a user agent.

Hi everyone, just joined. Have been experimenting, in odd moments, with the released version of Win 7 - oem 64 bit. Working out where it stores all the configs is a nightmare, bits all over the place and some very odd behaviour. Have not got around to dissecting the registry yet, I just pray...
