classic shell- is it safe

    Clintlgm, have you found a solution to the IE11 crashes? I've tried a number of things but nothing has helped so far. I'm getting the "unable to open page" message.

    No I haven't figured out any reason for these crashes, for me pages just don't update clicking on a link just creates blank partial pages. Close and restart usually fixes it. I had thought it might be something to do with opening 5 home page tabs. I have gotten the can't open page message some too but not to often. I have thought that it was due to the pages being down for services etc. ROG foru m has issues pretty often. This forum seems to lock up pretty often not allowing me to create Hyperlinks or insert pictures. I've been writing these off as forum issues maybe it the way the forums deal with IE 11

    Just to let you all know that I have found downloading easy and I am not a computer whiz by any stretch of the imagination. I went to YouTube and used this Irish Bloke's explanation which made it REALLY simple. Hope my 2 cents' worth helps someone out there.

    Actually I have for the most part solved it. The answer seems to be running only 1tab at a time. for some reason IE11 can't handle multi tabs?
    So I just put links in my Favorites tool bar and just use 1 tab seem to have pretty much solved the issue. for all but Facebook that one still crashes or locks up from time to time.

    Hello,

    Yes, Classic Shell is a perfectly safe program, but remember to download it from developer website, not third-party websites.

    Yup. It is a safe program to download but make sure it is from the official site.
