Hi all,on my Acer desktop running Windows 7 64bit SP1, IE9 refused to start.
If I try and run it in any possible ways (shortcut, direct run, via dos like shel....) it flashed for a while and disappeared
If run ad administrator, the program started.
I had a look on support sites and forum and tried the following:
- resetting internet setting
- running without addons
- disabling IE9: the IE8 bound into the operating system showed the same behavior
- reinstalling IE9 via windows update

As a workaround, I installed Google Chrome and it seems to work without problems
I'm currently using Microsoft Security Essential.
I run deep scan of microsoft malware removal tool but found no infections
I rin OTL and perform scan. Attached the OTL.txt.
Can anybody help me to solve the issue?

Thanks in advance

Hi a.benvi,

Welcome to Geeks To Go! :happy:

Let's see if the following helps:

  • Right click on the Internet Explorer shortcut icon, and select "Properties".
  • Under shortcut tab, select the button that reads "Advanced".
  • Uncheck the box that reads "Run as administrator".

You could also try a System Restore to a time before this occurred.

Other members may have a solution if mine don't do the trick. So please stay tuned.
