Scott, I have Windows 7 Professional installed on my usual desktop PC. Too often, IE11 refreshes msn.com by itself. This issue does not occur when I use Mozilla Firefox to view the msn.com site. I have essentially tried all of the methods listed on this page, but none of them have rectified the problem. At least once, when I tried to get onto msn.com using IE11, I got a "This page can't be displayed" message, and I wasn't even logged into my Microsoft account. Another problem is that I have received "This page can't be displayed" messages when I tried to use IE11 to go onto various sites where I was logged into accounts associated with them. There was at least one incident where IE11 repeatedly refreshed Amazon.com when I was logged into my Amazon account. Scott, should I do yet another clean reload of Windows 7 Professional? If I use an official Microsoft installation disc for the reload, I should definitely install prerequisite updates for IE11.

Note that this behavior is not only normal, it is intentional. Many websites (especially news or aggregate sites like MSN, CNN, ESPN, NBCNEWS, etc.) use code to cause browsers to refresh their pages. This can be done via HTML or Javascript code.

There are ways to disable the HTML Meta Refresh code in many browsers and one can also disable Java in the browser, which can help to stop this otherwise normal behavior. Be aware that doing this may cause some sites not to work properly. I also recommend running Adblock Plus in all browsers as ads can also initiate page refreshes. Finally, I recommend using only Firefox or Chrome for browsing and using IE only for Microsoft Update. Scott.

A big problem I have with IE11 for Win 7 is that I too often get a "This page can't be displayed" message after I log into my Facbeook account using IE11.

I usually don't get the message when I'm on Facebook using IE11 and I'm not logged into my Facebook account

Use Firefox or Chrome as recommended.
