Windows 7: IE 11 Opens a Blank Page Under My Home Page On Startup.

Hi Voyager,

As your running with Palemoon, me to and Waterfox, why bother with IE11, just turn it off.

You could run a couple of system repair tools, just in case something else is causing problems.
SURT- Kb947821 and sfc /scannow.

Also reset your internet options via control panel, and check the Add-ons options

While Pale Moon is my default browser, I have a specific need to use 2 other browsers for a specific purpose. Chrome is one and IE is the other. To be honest, that is all I use them for, one specific operation several times a day. I could use Opera, I suppose, but I'm setup and used to using IE to do it.
Plus, I hate it when something doesn't work right.
Then, it gets maddening when it keeps morphing into something else.
I end up getting like a dog with a bone about it.
I'm going to set it aside for a bit, then come back to gnaw on it a bit later.

I took a look at that article.
I do have an odd entry behind the IE location: "-extoff".

I can find no explanation for what it is or does.

Also, many of my registry entries are different than those referred to.
I'll go back and play with it later when I get ma bit more time.

Did you delete the "-extoff" as mentioned in that website. There should be nothing after the quotation marks at the end. This is my IE target. There should be quotation marks at the start & at the end.

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

I haven't played with it yet, haven't had time to follow up if it gets complicated.
Had to go up an do some work on the roof today. Tomorrow we're going over to the other side of the island to COSTCO to do our bulk shopping. Then, the next day I'll be back up on the roof again.

Still got problems with IE, though.
It wouldn't open a web page today. Had to go to Pale Moon to get it open.
Gotta go get some sleep so I can drive over to Kona tomorrow morning.

Well, it's raining today, can't work on the roof.
But, the problem seems to have gone away for now.
IE now looks to be working properly.
Thanks for your help so far.
If it comes back, I'll be back.
I'll mark it SOLVED and start over if the problem comes back.

My galfriend is having a problem with Outlook.
I'll be working on that a little later today, or tomorrow.
I'll be back with a few questions when I'm ready to begin on it.

Thanks again.

One thing I did do that often times will fix buggy problems similar to what I was having with IE, was to shut the PC down and de-energize the mobo, switch the power off at the PS, or unplug it.
Whether or not that is the reason things are OK now, I do not know.
But, if it starts up again, I will do it again, and check more closely to see if that is what clears it up.

Shutting down the computer cna help if you normally leave it on all the time. I shut mine down whenever I have finished with it & I shut off the UPS & turn off the power to it as well.

I get a lot of power outages here & during the summer, occasional electrical storms so a UPS is essential to prevent data corruption due to sudden power outages.
