Windows Explorer freezing, Adblockplus ?

  awest3 18:41 10 Oct 2016

Since win 10 Anniversary edition I found my IE 11 has been freezing and then having to restore the webpage. I uninstalled Adblockplus (after much trial and error with other addons) and all is well. I reinstalled Adblockplus and it started freezing again so I again uninstalled it and all ok. Is this a known issue?

On searching the adblock plus forum it appears this is an ongoing problem which, at the moment, has no solution. Not all win 10 anniversary edition IE11 systems have this issue and they are trying to identify the reason behind it. I'll update when I get more information. Al

I have latest w 10 updates and, so far, no problems with Adblockplus with IE11.

Yes, It only seems to affect some systems. I'm assuming its due to the basic setup of the PC or some other add on which when combined with Adblockplus causes the issue.
