Windows 7: Internet Explorer - Reset

02 May 2015   #10

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Yes the same issue with Internet Explorer hangs for few minutes like around between 1 or 2 minutes before the link finally show on the browser that I typed. Also I tried to go to Tools then click Internet Options after that nothing show with Internet Options. I was hoping that I can reset this browser. The other thing is that I went on to check Windows Update to see " Installed Updates " and nothing show with Internet Explorer 11 and plan to uninstall this browser. I am not sure what else to do with this browser. Is there another way to uninstall Internet Explorer 11 or no way to do.

You can turn IE on or off in Windows Features, but not uninstall it.

Does using IE InPrivate Browsing mode work ok for you? If so, then it may be an installed add-on causing an issue.

XP Pro (x86) | 7 HP (x86) & (x64) | 7 Pro (x64)

On my 4 week old Lenovo laptop (e540) IE is very unstable. It alerts MS web-pages (and Australian Tax Office) as unsafe.
- and even safe websites that include a link to a section on the same page. If I press IE to try again the link opens ok.

Windows has not been updated ... it is default Win-7 PRO sp1 x64, out-of-the-Lenovo factory, bog basic except for Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 installed.

Typing this post I cannot "cut", but can "copy" as long as text is selected from end to start, not start to end.
- on occasions I cannot "copy" text unless I restart IE.
- cut, copy paste is faultless in Notepad, so I assume IE is the problem.

I cannot "show" my AV either from shortcuts or direct from the executable run as admin.
- I have repaired my AV (as instructed by Bitdefender) but I still cannot "show" BD.

IE has been very unstable for about 2 weeks, so I am assuming IE might be the problem with Bitdefender.
- a long shot I know, the alternative is to clean install Bitdefender and manually register my entire whitelists.
- a mammoth task.

The Lenovo has only the default IE and no email atall. I am wanting to install all my preferred tools, but want to try simple (maybe) possible fixes.
If the IE repair/reset is not the solution ... I will create a new thread in more appropriate SevensForums sub-forum

Am I on the right track ? Thank you :)

Hello Russell, :)

You could start by installing all Windows Updates to see if that may help.

For now, you might consider using a different browser (ex: Google Chrome or Firefox) until you can get IE11 sorted.
