Troubleshooting Tips for Browser Issues

– If Internet Explorer is not responding, the first step is to check for any updates or patches for the browser. Updating to the latest version can often resolve issues.
– Clearing the browser cache and cookies can also help to fix unresponsive behavior. This can be done by clicking on the gear icon in the top right corner, selecting “Internet options,” and then clicking on “Delete” under the browsing history section.
– Another troubleshooting tip is to reset Internet Explorer settings. This can be done by clicking on the gear icon, selecting “Internet options,” going to the “Advanced” tab, and then clicking on “Reset.”
– If Internet Explorer is still not responding, try disabling any add-ons or toolbars that may be causing the issue. This can be done by clicking on the gear icon, selecting “Manage add-ons,” and then disabling any unnecessary add-ons.
– If the issue persists, consider running Internet Explorer without add-ons. This can be done by searching for “Internet Explorer” in the Windows search bar, right-clicking on the result, and selecting “Run without add-ons.”
– Finally, if none of these troubleshooting tips work, consider using an alternative web browser like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to access the internet while the issue is being resolved.
