    Internet Explorer only opens as Administrator


    Hey, so I had this issue with multiple users across my enterprise. I've tried many fixes online but none of them seemed to work. It always led me back to having to open Internet Explorer as administrator...

    I've found a fix. This is Windows 10 64-bit.

    The reason you need to run IE as administrator is NOT because IE is requiring administrator permissions, but because it is running IE as a different user altogether. If you logged in as a different user, IE would open just fine.

    How to fix?
    Delete the user's profile.

    WARNING: Backup user files and verify special programs etc BEFORE performing these steps.
    Follow these steps to delete the user's profile:

    Right click Computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings. On the Advanced tab, choose the Settings-button under User Profiles. Delete the profile you want deleted.

    Once it's deleted, have them sign back in. Voila! Working Internet Explorer.

    Let me know if you have any trouble with this.

    :)

    Internet Explorer only runs as administrator in Windows 10

    My IE 11 only runs if I open it as Administrator. I'm trying to run it normally and it will never completely open.

    I just get a message "Internet Explorer has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem" with red bar moving across. Then it stops and final window shows with the message: "Internet Explorer has stopped working. A problem caused the
    program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

    I have gone into Internet Options>Advanced and Reset Internet Explorer Settings and rebooted a couple of times. I opened command prompt and ran
    sfc /scannow and no errors were found.

    I am using Edge primarily but occasionally need or want to use Internet Explorer.

    So, how do I get IE11 to run normally?
