    Can you actually type or load any page?
    If blank shows up only when you start IE, you might set the Homepage to about:blank.

    Hello Mario,

    In addition, you might see if completely resetting IE10 may help.

    I tried starting up IE10 in a new tab and that worked, but it'll only work if I do that. What is causing that?
