    Google in IE appearing blank and needs to be scrolled

    Since the holidays some staff have been reporting that when they load up IE, the page is blank and to get to Google (or presumably any home page) they need to scroll wayyyy down.

    I've tried it on an affected PC and it happens for me too. What is confusing is what could be causing it. It's a mixture of newly imaged and older machines (though have all probably got up to date IE10).

    I've tried disabling the proxy temporarily, still occurs. Tried running IE without Add-ons - still occurs.

    Anyone seen this and have any ideas?

    Hello,

    I don't have an answer for you i'm afraid but I wanted to add that we have just started to encounter the exact same issue and trawling the internet has led me to find this post.

    Similar circumstances whereby we have just spent the summer rolling out a fresh windows image which included IE10. Everything still works but its very strange that it loads with a perfect chunk of white space above google proper. Just large enough to knock it off screen with scrollbars.

    We are just sat debating it at the moment, wondering if it could be older group policy settings for IE9 causing it or settings stored in the user profiles from IE9. Clutching at straws at this stage

    Feel better not being alone however

    I'm now going to do what really annoys me on other Forums.

    Its happening to me as well!!!

    Newly imaged Win7 PC, IE10 only happens with Google. As an aside if someone edits something in Moodle all of the text is deleted. Scratching head, only one PC so far.

    We are still having no joy tracking down the cause of this as of yet. It only appears to be happening to a handful of staff machines. Still looking.. IE10 and smart notebook 11 with smart ink are the only new softwares on them... Have you had any luck E_G_R2?

    Interesting, just upgraded to Smart Notebook 11 but not as part of image so IE10 worked on PC without Smart Notebook 11.

    Havn't been working on this today but could be a link with Smart Notebook if we both have this?

    Try disabling smart Ink and see if that solves it.

    We have that problem here with google and a few other sites like education city, and disabling smart ink fixes it.

    Legend, thanks for discovering that. All of the affected PCs here have been upgraded to Smart 11. Explains why I couldn't get it to occur when using a student machine
