Annoying popup on IE*

After closing a hanging web page.Is there anyway to disable the message that comes up your browsing was interrupted do you want to resume or go to home page when you reopen IE. Youcant ignore it as nothing will happen and if you just close it it goes to your home page whether you want to or not

Not the same as this is it.

click here

If so there is only one way to bypass it but could lead to trouble later if your computer crashes.

This might help - you need to disable the crash recovery option

That looks closer sea urchin but alas typing GPEdit.msc only gets windows cannot find this file
what a stupid function when you already have a command to do it in tools anyway

Tools.options.Advanced .and scroll down to crash recovery and untick it.Ok.Apply. Ok if it asks for it.
But like I said you may get problems if your computer ever crashes.

oops ignore that entirely different from sea urchins method.

Just gave your Fix a try so will see how it goes Thanks.

After using Sea Urchin's fix it looks as though it has got rid of that problem for me.
So maybe worth a try and see if it does it for you.

regedit.exe it is.

1.Run Registry Editor (Type RegEdit.exe in Start Search or Run command).
2.Navigate to the following registry key branch:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery

Note: If the registry key (i.e. Internet Explorer and/or Recovery) does not exist, create one manually by right clicking on parent branch, and choose New -> Key, and then name the key according.

3.In the right pane, create a new DWORD value by right clicking on blank space and choose New -> DWORD (32-bit) Value, and then name it as NoReopenLastSession.
4.Double-click on NoReopenLastSession and set its value data to 1.

5.Exit Registry Editor.
6.Restart IE for the change to take effect.
