    So, as I said in the title, I have some apps that are a bit on the older side, and will not get upgraded and they work only in IE8 (No other browsers nothing). That was fine for Windows 7, but now when we all have Windows 10 that is a problem, since changing Compatibility View to IE8 doesnt help, and those pages that should give me info just dont work.

    Please give me any ideas how to solve this, since this is slapping me every time I open IE11.

    How can I use MSHTA.EXE with IE10 Standards Mode. The Metatag X-UA-COMPATIBLE IE=10 and X-UA-COMPATIBLE IE=EDGE both disable the HTA:APPLICATION-tag. Is this a bug and how to override it.

    OU is a website for online training course.

    I have a user reporting me that she is unable to see her course content after she logs in to URL ( There is a button at the top mijnOU when clicked on it the page displays login page correctly but after entering the credentials the page keeps loading on "waiting..." and after a minute it displays '' you must close all browser windows to be fully log out" - all these happens when accessing the URL from her company joined computer. It neither works on corporate LAN nor on Wifi.

    Luckily, the same URL works fine on her Personal PC at home wifi. 

    As a first troubleshooting step:-

    - I added the URL to Trusted list but no luck

    - Added the site to compatibility in IE

    - IE reset

    - Password change

    All steps did not solve the issue. Please guide or suggest something.

    Please note all testing has been done on Windows 10 1709 and 1803.

    We are a financial institution and have the need to set compatibility view mode for The Federal Reserve.  The sites are and (they are only accessible at a Financial institution with a Federal Reserve VPN router).  

    We've tried a login script method via Desktop Authority to set this registry key and we've also tried GPO to set this registry key.  The key is HKU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData\UserFilter.  Desktop Authority sets the key without issue.  GPO does not, so for this case we will continue to use Desktop Authority to set the key at login (or by running the login script out of the NETLOGON share).

    Upon initial logon this is working as we check the Compatibility View Settings under IE11's Gear menu.  We see these two sites plus 10 others.  The site list was created on one machine and then exported as a reg key.  I run process explorer and filter on Operation is RegSetValue and path contains UserFilter.  I see our Desktop Authority login script correctly set this key, and its 518 bytes long.  I launch IE and the sites are all there.  But then at some point usually a minute or two later after closing IE, there are 10 additional RegSetValue from rundll32.exe slowly chipping away at the UserFilter registry key (going from 518 bytes to 476,436,388,356,298,254,216,184,144 then finishing on 104 bytes).  

    Now going into IE after rundll32.exe manipulates this key, all of those preprogrammed sites are GONE, except for two, and  These two are also in the bigger list so I'm not sure why only these two survive.  I checked group policy and I cannot find anywhere this is being set, thats why I resorted to Process Monitor to try to figure out what is setting this.  In the stack trace for rundll32.exe I see two items from inetcpl.cpl which are ShowHelpPageW and ClearMyTracksByProcessW using rundll32.exe so it looks like that is what is setting this key.

    Any idea how or where its getting the two compatibility sites from?  We do have a GPO set to delete history on exit, but if that were to delete compatibility sites, then ALL sites should be removed, not just two leftovers remaining in the list.

    Unfortunately talking to the Federal Reserve's tech support is like speaking to a brick wall.  They don't want to hear ANYTHING because they have their guard up all the time.  The security there is very tight.  They do not want to hear that setting X-UA-Compatible meta tag to the HTTP headers of their site would automatically make this work.  The problem is if we go to do a wire transfer on their site, its just a blank white screen UNLESS its in compatibility view.  They will not support other browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome).  IE 11 must be used or the site will not work.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Is there a way to get an alert every time there is an attempt to download a file from the Internet?  We want it to be browser indifferent.  So not matter which browser people are using we would get an alert that a file is being downloaded.

    I configured my Windows Firewall to reject all programs except the ones I allow. This works fine for browsers like Forefox.

    However in case of Internet Explorer 9, I was unable to get internet access even though I set a Allow rule for iexplore.exe.

    Which other programs need to be set to "Allow this connection" rule to get IE to connect?

  • 08/09/18--11:52: Page title missing in IE11
  • In IE11 the website page title is not showing in the window title bar. This is something that I rely on, especially for screenshots of pages to capture the page title as there is some important information in the page title for the web-based application I use.

    is there any way we can retrieve page title in IE 11 . It is  showing as empty

  • 11/29/11--22:15: How to fix IE script errors
  • I am continuously getting script errors....sometimes after every key stroke I type (this just started happening about a week ago).

    I've gone to the Advanced tab of the Internet Properties and found that the "Disable script debugging" box is checked....and the "Display a notification about every script error" is unchecked.....which are the recommendations I've read about on how to fix this problem.  Since these boxes are already checked/unchecked appropriately, what is causing these script error problems.....and how can I get rid of them?

  • 08/13/18--11:12: Tool Bar Tiny
  • new 27 inch monitors.  Chrome and Edge toobars are fine.  I need a magnifying glass to read the URL's on IE 11.    Everything else on the monitors are perfect size for viewing.   How can I increase the Toolbar sizes for just IE 11 without affecting everything else?

    I'm wondering who can answer this.

    I.E. 11 will not remember passwords even though the option is turned on.  This happens only on a few Windows 10 computers with I.E. 11 (but not all win 10 computers in our domain though).

    I've verified that this happens to multiple accounts on the same computer.

    I've also went into tools->internet options->content->autocomplete and ensured that the options are turned on.

    I've also uninstalled and re-installed IE, but the issue still persists.

    I'm starting to think that there's a corrupt file or registry entry somewhere that may be causing issues, or it's some kind of security permissions issue that's preventing windows from writing to certain files or registry entries.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hi guys,

    We are experiencing a problem with IE in our organisation (version 11.165.17134.0) where the 'Favourites' drop down menu on the menu bar will only show user favourites when they are viewing pages either on the internal intranet, or trusted sites. If they are viewing another external website they cannot see their favourites on the drop down and any new ones that they add do not appear on the drop down.

    They can view pinned favourites on the toolbar and can open the favourites bar, so it only appears to be the drop down that is affected.

    I believe that this is a group policy setting which is causing the problem but cannot locate which setting I need to change. I have tried disabling 'Enhanced Protection' locally on my machine, but this only appears to fix the issue when my machine is in an OU in AD that does not have any other policies applied, moving it back to a standard OU with other company policies applied seems to being the problem back.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated :)

    Kind regards,
