  1. Internet explorer trying to open something on startup


    I do not have internet explorer set to start, but whenever my laptop turns on after being shut down it opens up between 3 and 7 windows and tries to reach a specific address before saying "this site could not be reached". Also, on a side note, there is a message box that also pops on startup saying something about a missing dll and any help would be much appreciated. See screenshot below.

    Trying to open Internet Explorer 11

    I am trying to find out why my Internet Explorer does not open all the way. When I click on Internet Explorer it just opens half a page, and I have to grab the bottom of it and pull it down the rest of the way. What's going on with it? I do have Windows
    10 and Internet Explorer 11

    Trying to open Internet Explorer 11

    Maybe I described it wrong . After I open Internet Explorer, say I type something in Bing to search for like Microsoft Community then click on web search only have the window opens up. I did the thing with the control button plus close out (X) and it didn't
    work. Are their any other suggestion? It also does this if you click on a link after Explorer is open.

    Hi EthanBurns. Welcome to the TenForums @EthanBurns.

    First are you running any Apple software, iCloud for Windows or iTunes? Saw quite a few threads that pointed towards Apple.

    If you do then you could look at uninstalling and re-installing. Before doing so I would create an Image with a tool like Macrium Reflect. (You want to be able to restore.)

    Also understand where data is located for these programs if you changed defaults. I uninstalled iTunes the other day and re-install. Was quite straight forward. Not sure on iCloud as you may have it to sync calendars etc with Outlook. Understand setup.

    Next I would recommend you run an AV scan with something like HitmanPro.

    HitmanPro.Alert Ransomware Prevention, Secondary Scanner and Zero-Day Exploit Protection | hitmanpro.com

    Not saying there is something but lets rule out the easy. Looks like you are running Avast.

    Then I would likely then follow this tutorial to isolate.

    If previous suggestions don't help, a quick Google search for "aaResources.dll" (seen in the URL in your screenshot) yields numerous hits for same problem. The - first - three I checked all this attributed problem to Amazon Assistant for Internet Explorer 11, each with relevant fix suggestions.
