Run Internet Explorer 8 with No Add-Ons

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I thought I might as well post this tip because I do it all the time. Running Internet Explorer 8 with no add-ons. Particularly useful if all you want to do is run Windows Update through IE.


The browser loads quickly and there is a link on the home page to take you directly to the update page.


Also pretty useful if you've tweaked your Internet Explorer a little too much and it can't stop crashing; It will help you troubleshoot the problem.


To get to the stripped down version of IE;


Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)


(If like me you only use this version to update windows, why not create a shortcut of that icon and place it somewhere more accessible)
