  2. Error: "Internet Explorer is not responding" and "Website not responding" while accessing the browser on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for your response and information.

    As Windows 10 as Microsoft Edge in-built browser, I suggest you to try that browser and check if this issue persists.

    For the issues with Internet Explorer try the below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run the Internet Explorer Performance troubleshooter.

    • Press Windows key, type troubleshooting
      and select it.
    • Click on View all in the left pane.
    • Click onInternet Explorer Performance and follow the onscreen instructions.

    Step 2: I suggest you to turn off and on Internet Explorer and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Press Windows + R, type Control Panel
      and hit Enter.
    • Click on Programs and Features.
    • Click on Turn Windows features on or off from the left pane.
    • Uncheck Internet Explorer, click on Ok.
    • Restart the computer and repeat the same as above to place a check mark on Internet Explorer.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of this issue for further assistance.

    Explorer Not Responding

    Error: "Internet Explorer is not responding" and "Website not responding" while accessing the browser on Windows 10

    OK here we go -

    1. Try Microsoft Edge - worked perfectly

    2. Installed Google Chrome - worked perfectly

    3. Tried your Option 1 - Troubleshooter "found and fixed" a Windows Update component

    Tried IE after the troubleshooter - still have same problem.

    4. Tried your Option 2 - still have same problem.
