Hi, I wonder if anyone else has seen this issue. If I open a couple of tabs in IE11 and then close one of them down. If I then put my cursor on IE11 in the task bar it shows the tab is still open with a revolving circle in the middle and does not close down. If I then try to go to the other open tab I get 'websitename not responding' the only way I can close down the tab is by using task manager to close down the whole of IE11. Any help gratefully received as ever. Al

My wife's PC is now suffering with this phenomenon. Again its a windows 10 machine which appeared to be working normally until recently. Its probably one of the windows updates which is causing this but who knows... can't seem to find any info on the problem. When I use CCleaner just before closing the machine it asks if it should close down IE11, which should be already closed...

Running IE as administrator fixed this kind of problems for me. Gone to Chromium based Vivaldi browser now and finding it very good.

Hi, Thanks for this. I'm afraid running as administrator did not fix this for me. Thanks again.

You could try re-setting IE. Tools - Internet Options - Advanced tab and select reset. Close IE then reboot.

Hi Thanks for these suggestions, none worked I'm afraid. I'll try and do a screen print and copy it here.

As you can see this is what I get when I try to close the window. At this point nothing works and I have to go into task manager to close down IE 11 and start again...happens 8 out of 10 times I use IE11.
