Since updating to IE 11 yesterday, I have an ongoing problem, every 10 to 15 seconds a DOS window opens for a fraction of a second and then closes again.

 

I can't read anything in the window and have done a scan with MSE and Malwarebytes.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

IE 11 is brand new and I too have just upgraded to it. While I don't use IE much I don't seem to be having this problem. The most likely cause is some bug in IE which MS will eventually work out. Unless this flashing DOS prompt is interfering with what you are trying to do, then it is more of a nuisance than anything else.

 

If it really is getting in the way, you could always try a different browser for a time - Chrome, Firefox etc.

I got my solution in another thread so I will also post it here:

 

Here is a 60 second screen cast using Process Explorer:

The popup at :42 actually showed up and let me see the error

 

\LastPass\FileBroker.exe  and the error is "Runtime reported exception 1722"

 

The upgrade to IE caused the LastPass plugin to crash, uninstalled and then reinstalled and it now seems fine.

I have heard a few people are not happy with the latest version and while the premium version is very cheap (especially when packaged with Xmarks) the support is generally very poor from that company. 

 

When error messages like this one show up, you have no way of knowing whether is it is the IE version, the Chrome version, the Firefox version or the Opera version and when submitting a trouble ticket you have to select that you are need help for only one of those, no option for ALL of them. 

 

They do at least now have a global installer that makes it easier to put all versions on a system, but you still have to manually remove them all from each browser when UNinstalling.
