Dell INSPIRON

Specs: Windows 8
When I get to the MSN homepage there is only text & tiles & no pictures. I can't access outlook from there it just keeps trying. Some websites work, but don't have all their functionality. I can get to my bank site for example, but can't get to the detail in my account. This started on start up on 4/5/2013. I finally manged to download Google Chrome so I can use that. At first I couldn't download anything. I have tried resetting IE10 & used Microsoft troubleshooting & Fixit. By the way Microsoft Troubleshooting & diagnosis has been useless on any computer I have ever had. I really don't want to Refresh my computer, as I will lose Chrome & may not be able to access the internet again. I have run virus & maleware programs. This is a Dell Computer purchased in Nov. 2012 with Windows 8 & IE10 already installed. Please help.

Turn off GPU rendering. I have been having a lot of these issues of late.

Thanks for your help. I tried to fix it as stated by turning off GPU rendering, but it did not change anything. Thanks for trying. Still can't use IE10.

I recently uninstalled McAfee, but this was after my IE10 came up without pictures & before I realized some websites were not functional. I saw a solution of going to McAfee after you uninstall & get the McAfee uninstall tool MCPR.exe to make sure all of McAfee is uninstalled. I took these steps & my IE10 is working properly again! This applies to Dell computers with a trial of McAfee installed. Don't know if will work for others with this problem. Hopes this helps someone else. Thanks for the site.

Thanks for the info - this pre-installed stuff can be a pain in the butt.

In general the trick is to always disable AV's and Firewalls before uninstalling them. Otherwise, the sure-fire solution is to download an uninstall from their websites. The latter ensures that all the remnants (registry entries etc) have been removed too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
