Can anyone tell me why I get a pop up saying that IE 11 with Windows 7 has had a problem with this page and will close the program? This happens when I close the new Google Maps. The page is already closed. There is no problem as I close the pop up and everything is fine.

If I open IE with no Add-ons it does not solve the problem.

If I check the box for "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" it solves the problem.
or If I use compatibility view setting for the Google site, that solves the problem.

I Goggled this question and I saw a lot about the new Google maps and IE 11 not working properly. Does anyone else have knowledge of this?

Thank you,
TomS

Thank you Louis. I checked that out but it seems for me it is backwards. The Google New Maps works fine if Google.com is on the list of website I have on compatibility view. Not off of the list. That is the problem I GUESS as the New Maps does not work right in the IE 11 and has to revert back to an older version of IE. I think that is the way it works.

Actually the maps work fine. It is when I close the Google maps pages that I get the pop up saying that IE is not working, and actually it is working and if I have another web page open and I close out the pop up that says that IE is not working every thing is fine.

This may not be exactly what you need, but Google Maps Classic is a lot more stable and user-friendly, IMO anyway. Is IE 11 working OK with Classic?

 

When Yahoo killed Yahoo! Mail Classic, they took away a very stable and easy to use Yahoo! Mail. Now, well, it feels like the new Google Maps. I hate both. At least, with Google, you still can revert to Classic, but not with Yahoo...

You are right the classic version is more stable.It works fine with Maps Classic but they really are trying to get you to use the new Google Maps. You know what will happen! The Classic version will disappear. So I figured I best get used to using the new version. Now I actually like it but it took some getting used to.

MSN did the same with MY MSN. They got rid of it and now the site that you have to use is so bad that I don't think anyone uses it. I switched to MY YAHOO. It was the closest to what I wanted in the modules that you can put on it (MY NEWS, MY FINANCES)
