    Default IE tabs go blank and stop responding

    I find that my IE tabs sometimes go blank and don't respond. I have to either close the tab and reopen another one or sometimes close IE completely and then re-open. Is this just IE being IE or do I have something that is fixable?

    I'm running Win 8.1

    No and hopefully yes.

    Note that most problems with IE8, IE9, IE10 and IE11 are due to conflicting or misbehaving add-ons. To run without add-ons in Windows 8, open the Run box and type the following command line argument and hit Enter:

    iexplore.exe -extoff

    If all is okay, you know one of your add-ons is the problem. If not, you may need to Repair or Reinstall IE.

    Well it took a few days but now if has done it. It seems to happen on fb and then affects other tabs. I also find that occasionally, if I go to click on a link, the page scrolls up instead when I left click

    Have you scanned for malware? What are you using for security? Is your computer fully updated?

    I run windows defender. I also scan with MBAM and SAS and run Spywareblaster. SAS always finds something but I think only cookies

    I'm not so sure about the ad.pubmatic thing. I will run it again and post a second log after quarantining what it's just found

    Well, I run WD with Windows Firewall, and supplemental scanning with MBAM and SAS too - so I think you are safe there. Of course the best security in the world is useless if the user opens the door and lets the badguy in. So avoiding risky behavior like filesharing via P2P and torrents, or being "click happy" on unsolicited downloads, attachments and link is essential to safe computing too.

    I generally run CCleaner or Windows Disk Cleanup before manual scanning to purge the system of temporary files.

    I also use IE11 as my default browser but have several alternatives I use to verify sites work properly, or not. Do you have the same problems if using FF or Chrome?

    Firefox seems to work OK but I don't use it much.

    I'm still having problems with IE. Some tabs just go blank. I did notice at the bottom of my screen tonight, it said something about 'adtech'?
