Using ie11 now and nothing is operating differently,
I have switched to GPU rendering instead of Software rendering and it's better/ Notes about this are listed lower in the discussion,
Ie11 Enterprise mode,
There is a few tweaks which I've learned to use for a better experience which also apply to ie9 as well,
First this is probably the best corruption/ bug finder I've run across, Yes it's free :)
Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here,
Ignore the title of the thread,
Or download it from bleepingcomputer.com and follow this download process,
Use Clean boot to remove unnecessary startup items if you have more than 4 or 5 you have too many,
Your Security is about all you really need to startup with windows,
Ever wondered how to safely get rid of Junkware ?
Options for oem factory installs remove pre-installed manufacture junkware,
ie11 issues with shockwave might be as simple as this,
Adobe shockwave player is probably the biggest role players in how well ie9 or 10 operates/ I usually run with it Disabled and only enable if a I want to watch a video, besides who really cares if annoying advertisements play on a website ?
Uninstall flash if needed,
Fix flash player permissions problems,
Start of the Tweaking :)
Also switch to Software rendering,
The current version of Adobe shockwave flash element does not get disabled when you use this recommended reset process,
Export Favorites to Html file just to be safe before Resetting Internet explorer,
I'm not exactly sure why but you must manually Disable it to troubleshoot issues,
Use Alt+TA or Gear symbol and Manage add-ons,
Click on Show all add-ons and Toolbars and Extensions,
Click on Adobe Shockwave flash and click on Disable on the bottom right,
I've found little to no need for Java from Oracle so Uninstalling it might help a bit and making sure the Java deployment kit is disabled/ haven't found a way to completely remove Java deployment as of yet ?
Read this and decide if Java is good or evil,
I've also found Alt+TB or Menubar/ Tools/ Compatibility view settings,
Uncheck Download comp-view lists from Microsoft automatically is a good thing to do/ except for Intranet leave Checked and of course Uncheck view all sites in comp-view. will help either version of ie.
Delete your Browser history to get rid of any prior downloaded Compatibility view lists already downloaded,
Every once in awhile the Broken page Icon, (Comp-view) Blue is activated/ Gray is not,
It doesn't always appear and if you ever see the Blue circle with the slash through it right click it to disable active x filtering, also at gear symbol/ Safety/ and Uncheck all items,
When the Broken page Icon does not appear use the F12 key (developer tools)
Click on Browser mode and make sure your using ie10 and not Comp-view which usually is only needed if video controls are inactive and a few other page rendering issues click on another listing to force a switch/ the page will auto refresh,
Document mode can also be manually switched the same way.
Standards usually works best but there are rare occasions where ie7 will end up being checked as default.
Delete Browser history on exit,
I personally don't use allot of features like Form fills/ auto password and Username collections/ or even the New tabs page-Frequently visited sites list,
So if you also don't care for those feature,
Open Internet explorer,
Use Alt+TO or Menubar/ Tools/ Internet options, which you can also access with the Gear symbol on the top right and Internet options,
Uncheck the very top box and then check all others except for the third from the top Cookies box,
The cookies box will allow you to say logged into various sites where you check the box to Remember you/ stay logged in/ it's about all I use.
Delete browser history Settings button,
This next section Caches and Databases listing is purely optional I've found no difference in allowing them or not,
History is also a personal preference I do not stockpile temp. files.
There's not much you can do with Temp files section except make sure it's set on the Recommended size of 250MG in ie10 (Automatically) is not changeable,
In ie9 I had no problems changing the setting to Every time I visit a webpage which I prefer,
But as always there can be third party Security suites which will not understand and therefor block Internet explorer's processes so Please state what you use Microsoft security essentials is popular on this and many other help forums,
For added security you can add another popular one Malwarebytes Pro/ very cheap and works well with MSE,
But be sure to remove any existing security suite before adding another one to replace it,
Avast and AVG have issues with ie10 along with Mcafee and Norton.
