So Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10) has arrived

So Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10) has arrived

IE10 has started to arrive on home pc’s. Have just had my first repair job when IE10 would not fully open. The problem was traced to AVG 2012 Add on.

Over the years the amount of Internet Explorer add-ons installed increases, the majority not needed. Some add-ons like antivirus are normally best left to improve security when surfing.

In this case the AVG add-on was disabled, to check if it was causing the problem and then AVG was updated to a later version.

This update was installed as part of the normal weekly cycle so the user was un aware that Internet explorer had been updated.

In the office environment the update via WSUS has been disabled in Active Directory (AD) using Microsoft Tools, when we are happy that all our office applications work we will update.

To disable add-on in IE run IE with Add-ons disabled, in the run box or cmd line, "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"  -extoff or under Start – Accessories – System Tools.
