Internet Explorer immediately launches when try to open the desktop from the Start screen

When I log onto my computer, instead of the Start screen opening, the Desktop opens, AND when the Desktop opens, Internet Explorer immediately launches there. 
Other times, when I log-on, my computer will open on the Start screen, but then immediately launches Internet Explorer on the Start screen.  I didn't click any Internet Explorer icons."
Also, when I am doing something on the Start screen and decide I want to go to the Desktop and I click the "Desktop tile" it switches me to the Desktop and launches Internet Explorer.  Again, I didn't click the Internet Explorer tile.
(I just wanted to go to the blank Desktop.)
There is something telling my computer to always open Internet Explorer first.  When I tried a warm boot, the problem went away momentarily, but returned after a few days"

Hi,
What is your current situation?
Have you checked the suggestions by Robert?
When opening PC the start menu will automatically start Internet Explorer in APP mode, and if we set Internet Explorer to open in desktop mode, then it will automatically open under desktop when start?
As we have no Internet Explorer in startup configured, so it won't start by itself. We may try to replace Internet Explorer item's position on the start menu with a different APP, then check what happens(drag and drop the desktop icon on the place of the
Internet Explorer);
Is the MSN webpage your home page here? If not, then there might be some application on the startup automatically launches this page, we may take a try to disable one at a time to check; and if this is your default home page, try to replace it with another
one, then change it back.
From the last response of
this thread , it seems this is more related with the webpage than the browser?
Best regards

    Have you tried closing the Photos app completely and then re-opening it ? From the home screen (i.e. not with Photos 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the Photos app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.

  • Error occured when try to open the BI report from words (template builder)

    Hi,
    After i LogOn into BI Publisher thru words, successful. But when choose a report to open, error returned as "Error occured. Please check the settings and try again."
    My team had do various of testing, try to reinstall the BI publisher desktop, but not able solve the problems. From the forum, someone comment is due to data loaded too large, so we try to put a query which only select single record from a small database, but still same error.
    then we suspect is due to the proxy setting, because once i reset to bypass the proxy, i able to open the report thru words without any error.
    i found this comment from online doc :
    Have set up the proxy parameters (to avoid any firewall problems with the Web Services and RSS data set reports) in the xmlpserverstart.bat file or the oc4j.cmd file as per your installation.
    Modify the following line, which defines JAVA_HOME. (Observe the proxy parameters in bold.):
    •     "%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java" %JVMARGS% -jar -Dhttp.proxyHost= <myproxy.mycompany.com> -Dhttp.proxyPort=<Port> "%OC4J_JAR%" %CMDARGS%
    Restart xmlpserver or oc4j as the case may be.
    but i can't found this xmlpserverstart.bat or oc4j.cmd from server.
    Please comment.
    Thanks
    Regards

  • Error: ALC-WKS-007-027 when try to open the form after converting its process to short-lived

    Hello,
    We have converted some of these long-lived processes to short-lived processes since they do not contain "Assign Task". After the converting users start to get the error: "Error occurred during the operation. ID 2547 ALC-WKS-007-027" in Workspace when they try to open to open the form that they have opened before the converting. Clearing cache and history in the users' browser would solve the issue and they were able to open the form but that have to be done by each user and it becomes time consuming. Beside the error above from the users' Workspace, we also see the below errors in the log file, can any one please advise what should be done rather than each user have to clean the cache and history in their browser.

    Hi Jasmin,
    Will "Reset Cache" in the AdminUI help to stop those errors that keep appearing in the log file and/or on the workspace? We receive more and more complaint about that issues while clearing cache on their browser is not a good solution for them. Please advise.

  • App-v 4.6: Internet explorer application sequenced, when Internet Explorer is started, application does not launch

  • Internet Explorer is crashing when opening application

    Internet Explorer is crashing when opening application.
    Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11
    Oracle JInitiator 1.3.1.22

    I was having similar issues turned out to be a problem with the Jinitiator proxy setting. If you go into Win->control panel->Jinitiator Then Proxies and UNCHECKE the 'Use browser settings' option it may fix the problem.
    My Setup: Winxp SP3, IE7.0.5730.11CO, Jinitiator 1.3.1.26
    I was able to open Apps using Firefox3 fine, but IE was crashing everytime Jinitiator started. Turns out it's because of how the proxies in IE versus FF were setup, so it could open via the FF browser Proxy setting but not via the IE7 proxy settings. Telling Jinitiator to NOT use the browser setting enabled me to use both IE7 and FF3
    Note: My company uses a automated proxy configuration script (proxy.pac) so if you have a similar setup to this it may help.

    Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work. The intent is to see if it is specific to one account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.
    Isolating an issue by using another user account
    Try booting into the Safe Mode using your normal account.  Disconnect all peripherals except those needed for the test. Shut down the computer and then power it back up after waiting 10 seconds. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear and again when you log in. The boot up is significantly slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a directory check, and disables all startup and login items, among other things. When you reboot normally, the initial reboot may be slower than normal. If the system operates normally, there may be 3rd party applications which are causing a problem. Try deleting/disabling the third party applications after a restart by using the application un-installer. For each disable/delete, you will need to restart if you don’t do them all at once.

  • When I try to open the HTML file "file:///C:/Users/DHeimann/Documents/JP Cohousing/Retreat agenda 2014.htm", the system attempts to access Gmail and hangs.

    I can open various most other *.htm or *.html files on my C drive without a problem. However, there are other HTML files on the drive that do have this problem when I try to open them.
    When I try to open the file in Internet Explorer rather than Firefox, I get a message that JavaScript is not enabled. However, I do have JavaScript enabled, and have just updated Java to Version 7, Update 51.

    One of the problems with saving web pages from complex dynamic sites like Gmail is that you may be saving the instructions for rendering the page rather than the actual content of the page. In that case, if you are logged out of your account or there is a cross-site security bar to pulling the needed data, then the saved page may not display correctly or at all. If a message is critical, it's a good idea to print or save the page to PDF or grab a screen shot to work around that problem.
    The message you're getting in Internet Explorer may be related to the fact that IE has different security zones with different restrictions. For example, sites in the Internet Zone normally can run JavaScript, and sites in the Restricted Sites list cannot. The local computer zone has much tighter security compared with the old IE6/XP days, and that may explain what you're seeing there.
    P.S. Browsers interpret JavaScript internally without using the Java plugin.
