  • MS fixes the bug that causes a looooong delay in starting Internet Explorer

    Posted on August 16th, 2019 at 22:11 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    From four hours ago:

    On August 16, 2019 at 7:16 AM a server required for downloading the Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) startup page, went down. As a result of the server outage, IE 11 became unresponsive for some customers who had not yet installed the August 2019 security updates. Customers who had the August 2019 security update installed were not affected. In order to ensure your devices remain in a serviced and secure state, we recommend you install the latest monthly update.
    This issue was resolved on the server side at 1:00 pm PST.
