    Internet Explorer 11 will not open with me (win 10) but I found the problem to be rapport, shut that down and IE 11 works fine!. You can restart rapport once you open IE 11. The makers of rapport are aware of the issue and are hoping to release an update to rapport to solve the problem!.

    I would like to add that I have the ieproxy.dll listed under IE explorer. Never the less when I click it all I get is a flash of light.

  9. John Michel says

    I lost my IE icon on my desktop. When I sent a shortcut to my desktop and clicked on it all I get is a flash of light, and nothing else. I must have hit the wrong key by accident, but now I show a non working icon even though the IE is working since I can get on the internet with other browsers. Can you help me work this out step x step. Thanks.
