    IE 11 quit after patches

    After installing the latest round of Windows 7 patches
    (Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64)
    IE11 has decided to run in a strange mode. It pops up
    a 2nd window (the startup window just flashes & disappears),
    the 2nd window is titled "View and track your downloads"
    and inside it shows the name of a file (presumably what
    was on the end of the url it was going to).

    Not sure what to do. "Turn off windows features" turning off/on IE 11
    didn't help matters.

    What can be done?

    Restore prior to the updates to see if that resolves it and then install just one at a time until the problem reoccurs.

    Go to Tools>Options>Advanced and reset to defaults first.

    Wow, after fruitless googling, I decided to look in the forums here for my new problem of IE11 not loading. Whiz bang, I downloaded EMET 5.1 and my problem is solved. I rarely use IE, but I want things to work when I need them. Thanks, Loungers. Dan
