    New AssUS X551 issues enter IE 11


    Windows 8.1 IE 11.

    I purchased an ASUS X551 with windows 8.1.

    I select windows 7 style ( on my 8.1 laptop with classic shell when IE is opened it goes straight to the desktop )

    Here the issue on the asus ,when opening IE it opens a different IE window , or an ad pg for capital one. I then had do do the ctr. Alt Del , and end it in the taskbar . Then it brings to the desktop.

    Then there are too differ IE icons in the taskbar. I .

    remove the bad one ,click on the good IE icon it IE and then IE opens ok.

    A Fix to this ?

    Yes there is the Meto IE 11 App and the desktop IE 11, however you should be able to drag down the top of the app window and use the X to close it. So you need to set your default to the desktop IE. You may need to redirect or create a new Icon Link to "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" This will open the desktop version of IE 11

    You Short cut properties should look like this Click image for larger version
    It also sound like you got some malware running you should run some scans to see if you can get rid of it. You didn't get that from Classic Shell or from Asus.
    I use Malware Bytes Pro and Norton Internet Security. Keeps me safe with out issues

    This fixed it.

    Found a Fix.

    Right-click on the taskbar, select Properties and go to the Navigation tab.
    Check the setting to go to the desktop automatically.

    It's not quit that in 8.1 but it works ,and go to IE when the icon is selected.

    Different for me, I have all the metro crap disabled Classic Shell settings disable all corners. I run pretty much the same as I did with windows 7. Some of your default file association need to be set to your desktop programs. Especial *.pdf
    Control Panel/ Default Programs save your self some aggravation and set them to your desktop programs
