    Not Responding in Internet Explorer 11.


    Windows 10, IE 11...desktop on a good WiFi connection.
    Since the Anniversary Windows update IE 11 is now plagued with 'Not Responding' reports on all websites/forums.
    Sometimes a click of the back button restores things and sometimes I have to come off the internet and start again.
    It can operate OK for up to 30 minutes without a problem...other times 2 minutes.

    I have never tried another browser (except Edge) and have used IE right from the beginning of Windows....have always made things work and never believed in simple adding more programmes instead of resolving an issue.

    Have two similar PC's, the other is Ethernet connected, and prior to the Anniversary update that too had a slight 'Not Responding' problem...but now OK!

    PS. My BT/Yahoo EMail operates OK.

    :)

    "Internet Explorer Not Responding" and browser will freeze on Windows 10.

    Original Title: Internet Explorer - not responding

    Hi,

    I have Windows 10 and Internet Explorer 11. Recently IE has started to freeze and come up with the message 'Internet Explorer Not Responding'.

    My system is up to date.

    An ideas?

    Thanks

    Internet Explorer 11 not responding

    Thank you Andre , I also have had to start using Google Chrome but only to be able to get onto the net. I still can not figure out what is going on. IE and any thing linked to the it or the net do not work, like clicking on anything like the MS store,
    it is just dead, I am guessing that is because IE the link is not working. And just this morning I find that the "Caluculator" I have used for years from Win 7 to Win 10 is also not working, it tells me I have to go to the Store and pick the new one "Easy
    Caluculator", but I like the old one and no one writes anything nice about this new one, and I can not download it anyway because the link is still stuck to IE ... I have tried all the things everyone has said the get IE working and the links to work, so far
    nothing is working. Again, Please anyone Help, I need a fix for this, a patch, an update, please what will repair this? HELP!!!

    M$ does not care. I gave up on IE 11 and now use FireFox. Wish IE 11 still worked. *Sad

    Did you check Event Viewer and Device Manger ? May be an issue with a network driver.

    Also, troubleshoot your network. Right click the icon in lower right of taskbar.

    Troubleshooter didn't show anything.
    Checked Event Log and under App and Services Logs.....Internet Explorer and all others have no events logged!
    Perhaps I can activate that log somehow?
    No appropriate event entries in the Device Manage...Network Adaptors.
    Thank you.

    Strange, sounds like a network issue to me.

    Try to reset IE. Also, is your connection wifi. If so, try to use ethernet connection to see if same issue.

    Could your AV be an issue ? May try to disable to see if any effect.

    I reset IE without selecting 'Delete Personal Settings'....(I tried this as an easier option!) it seems to be working fine now.
    Will update tomorrow after a couple more hours testing.

    It's certainly better but still not right.
    Will do a full reset in the next day or so and report back!

    I have done a full reset and the problem is still intermittent and not nearly as bad as it was.
    I will leave it for some time before I decide on my next actions.
    Thanks for your help!

    If the problem persists, you may consider a System Restore and if not effective a Reset of your pc.

    Info is available in the tutorials above.

    Not Responding in Internet Explorer 11.

    Thanks.
    System restore was tried but it was the Anniversary update then the next Windows update that caused the problems.
    Similar problems on two near identical PCs.
    Will wait and for the first time ever may well try a different browser....if only Edge was up to it?

    I notice BIG problems with IE and Facebook! Very often IE won't even load FB at all! Today...it seems fine but tomorrow is another story *Wink I think M$ is trying real hard to make us all switch to Edge, the lamest browser in history.

    Update.
    2 of my 3 PCs have sorted their selves out. The 3rd, mine, I have gone to Edge and it is running well.
    So generally a reasonable outcome without using a third party browser, which I have never done.
    Apart from not being able to adjust the Favourites list on the right of the screen it is acceptable. (Posted this problem elsewhere).

    I do agree that MS seem to be favouring Edge over all else......trouble is if they do users will go over to all the other browsers anyway! Perhaps they are happy to take a hit simple to retire IE in the short term!

    Thanks again I'm out*Wink
