Windows 7: Print Preview not working on Specific Web Sites with IE10 or IE11

Windows 7 Ultimate x 64
Print Preview not working on Specific Web Sites with IE10 or IE11

Print Preview is blank when I try to view the abstract of an article from the ScienceDirect web site. | Search through over 11 million science, health, medical journal full text articles and books.

Running W7 64 bit.

This behavior was not observed with IE9. Viewing in compatibility mode does not help.

"Print Preview" sometimes triggers the CPU to run high, only on the above web site.

(I wonder whether ScienceDirect do not want researchers to print abstracts).

Any suggestions?

Hi harin35,

Issue could be that the protected mode is enabled for the Internet security zone of the web page.

Try printing a webpage after disabling Protected Mode, to do this, follow these steps:

Click the Tools icon in Internet Explorer
Click the Security tab and uncheck the checkbox beside Enable Protected Mode (requires restarting Internet Explorer)
Click Apply , and then click OK.
Close all open Internet Explorer windows, and then restart Internet Explorer.
Browse to a website and try test printing a page while running as the Administrator.

I can't get IE10 or IE11 to install
Sorry - not exactly a novice, but I get a server error when I try to attach my file. My guess is the file is too large at 11mb. FYI- when I ran /scannow, I got no errors. The reason I'm trying to attach the file is because I can't get IE10 or IE11 to install on my Win7...
