Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

I had the same issue with my latest sysprepped images, the only thing I did different from my previous image was include IE 11 and associated updates. I was happy after I joined them to our domain because the behavior dissappeared after that. I have a couple of GPOs related to IE as listed below:

Enable "Disable add-on performance notifications"
Enable "Automatically enable newly installed add-ons"
Disable "Turn on Suggested Sites"
Enable "Prevent performance of First Run Customise settings" and select "Go directly to home page"

One of these is likely responsible, probably the last one...sorry I'm to busy to further test so maybe give this a shot if you are still having this issue.
