My computer has been working fine. I shut my computer down, came home and tried to open Internet Explorer it isnt working. When I click on the link it acts like it is going to open and then nothing pops up. The only way I can run it is if I click on run as administrator.

My system is Windows Vista and I am running IE 7.

Please Help

Thanks

If you want to temp change it

Right click IE and hit properties/preferences

Then go to compatability and run it as administrator always

Sorry if my instructions are off, I'm not on Windows right now

Also your UAC level may have been turned up

Is this happening with anything else

I would rather not do a temp change. I would like the problem fixed. I dont see any problems with anything else, just IE.

Thanks

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same thing?

I had the same problem on a network. One of the computers kept stalling on Internet Explorer. Worked fine when run as administrator. Problem was with add-ons. Issue was resolved by first uninstalling Java and then reinstalling Java. Operating system: Windows 7, Internet Explorer 9.
