  1. Registering the DLL fixed mine.. NOTHING else was working. (Not even reinstalling IE) I am so glad I found this, thanks a ton!

    1. Happy to know that our reseach worked for you.
      Have a great day!!

  2. Hi. I got an error on step 2 that says “The filename,directory name, or volume level syntax is incorrect.” I have check the command line and typed it as it is.

    1. If you have 64bit windows installed on your computer then you have to try following command:
      regsvr32.exe “c:\program files (x86)\internet explorer\ieproxy.dll”

  3. It is also possible that Zynga’s chosen advertising network is to blame if we geagddafdgceckff

  4. When i attempted this as of 12/5/2015 when I get to the step 3 and try to download the ms fixit it says that it cannot download because my windows installer is not working correctly or not installed correctly. I skipped that and tried the next step to download the zip file and could not determine how to run it as a .cmd file so I just opened the files and ran them normally. Once I did that and tried to reset the Internet Explorer link I got the same message of windows installer not installed correctly. Any help would be appreciated. I am running Windows 7 on 64 bit.

  5. None of the links work here so apparently this is no longer a “solution”… What the hell is it still doing here then? IE11 still just flashes, then closes. Same with IE 10. I can get IE 9 to work, but not well. This doesn’t solve anything.

    1. So sorry for the inconvenience. We have checked and found some links were not working properly since we were upgrading our website. Now, all the links are working perfectly fine. Please follow all these instruction step by step and let us know if doesn’t help.

  6. Thanks so much. This worked for IE11 on 7 home 64bit. Your copy and paste line in step 2 is missing the closing “.

  7. Thanks it worked for me!!! the command prompt didn’t work though, I think I may have missed the ” at the end only seen in the comments after trying the Mr Fixit in step 3/4 which worked IE 11 on 7 Pro 32bit
