If there are still issues, clear your browser cache. Doing so also deletes your Compatibility View list. Go to Tools, then Internet Options>General, click Delete underneath Browsing history. Put a check in Temporary Internet files, and website files then select Delete.

Videos Will Not Play

There may be an add-on required in your browser to play the video you are trying. Also, be sure you are not trying to view the video while InPrivate Browsing. This setting blocks the required add-ons or info needed to play the video.

Another way to try fixing the issue is using Compatibility View.

Freezes or Crashes

Fix Internet Explorer crashing or unresponsive problem. One way is by turning off hardware acceleration. Your computer’s graphic card accelerates graphics-extensive tasks, such as online games or streaming video. Go to Tools, Internet Options>Advanced, now put a check in the box Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering. Hit OK, and restart your browser so the changes will take effect.

Another way is by running Internet Explorer Performance troubleshooter. So search and hit Troubleshooting. Select View All>Internet Explorer Performance. Using the Advanced link you want to Run as administrator. You receive results that are more accurate when run in admin mode. Make sure there is a check in the box Apply repairs automatically, hit Next, and follow all directions.
