HI

i have an issue with IE 11 and recover web page error after a few minutes of browsing.
I have manually disabled ALL ADD-on'S.
The only way it works without crashing/freezing is ( iexplore.exe-extoff ),

so one question is, what does, ( iexplore.exe-extoff ), do  that is extra than me manually turning off ALL ADD-ONS?

AND THE LAST QUESTION IS,
IS THE ONLY FIX,TO CLEAR THE CACHE?
AND IS THERE ANY WAY TO HAVE THE PASSWORDS REMAIN??

thank you

Perhaps.

Check under Internet Settings, General and clear temporary files.
Then go to Advanced and click on Reset.

You can do a basic reset without losing personal settings like passwords. This works. I have done this.

In tough cases, do a full reset. I have done this also. This means re-entering passwords.

Hi John,

I will probably need to clear cache, or reset IE or maybe even reinstall.

Extoff is mostly the same as turning off all add-ins.

Hi john
Understood, -extoff is the same as disabling all add-on
So why when I disabled all add-on it crashes but when I
-extoff it doesn't crash.  That is the expert opinion I need.
To understand what the difference is to help zero in on the root cause, even though I may just end up cleaning the cache or resetting IE or reinstall..

I do not know the internals of IE (few people do). In this situation, I do a full reset of IE and that normally (95% of time) clears things up.

You can disable IE in Control Panel, Programs and Features, Windows Features. This forces a restart. Then go back and enable IE again. Another restart.
