    Question about IE 11 in Windows 8.1


    Since running the update for Windows 8.1 there have been certain websites, like the various search engines, Google, Bing, etc. that cause IE 11 to lock up every time I try to use them with Protected Mode running. When I turn off Protected Mode they work just fine. I don't recall having this problem with IE 10 and I was just wondering if that is normal for IE 11, or if it is a glitch with the web browser itself.

    Thank you for your quick reply my2cents! Unfortunately unchecking "use Microsoft compatabilty lists" didn't seem to help, but I appreciate the help.

    This is not a fix but it appears others are having issues with their protected mode browsing as well. Maybe the best we can hope for is an MS fix but keep searching and let us know if you find a permanent fix:

    Good luck.

    Hi All,
    This is my first post so please bear with me.
    I'm having issues with IE11 that I keep getting a message that says "Cannot Display this Page".
    I have read a lot of things about how to fix this but it just keeps reappearing. It is very annoying to say the least as
    I do all the refreshing and resetting as per all the things I have read and it still happens.
    Can anyone tell a more permanent fix (if there is one that is).
    Cheers
    Gary

    You would be better off starting a new thread for your own issue so all responses can target your specific issue.
