Can I disable something?

Hi.

Your screenshot shows an empty screen, right? The address bar reads "about:blank".
Could it be that you configured the homepage to show an empty page? and that your by chance hit the home button of your browser from time to time unporposedly?

You have two IE modes in windows 8 . One is the tile version (windows start screen) and the other one is desktop mode.

Looks like the default is not set to desktop mode.


You can check this article on how to switch between different modes.

To configure IE to launch in desktop mode follow this article
