    You know, after I upgraded I forgot all about Tracking Protection Lists. They were removed during the update.

    In 8.1 this is controlled in the Metro IE11. Open IE11 in Metro, swipe in the charms bar, select settings, then privacy. You can then add Tracking Protection Lists from there. IE is running quite a bit better now, although it is too soon to tell if the flakiness is completely gone.

    Edit: Well, looks like commenting on WPC articles is still next to impossible and IE just crashed again. Still, it is faster with the lists enabled.

    2nd Edit: On WPC articles, if I hit "plain text editor" things work fine.

    Weird... it looks like it was from yesterday, yet didn't automatically install when updates were installed yesterday and this morning. It did let me manually install it though. Thanks for the heads up!

    Have you guys updated?

    Update improves the reliability of Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

    I don't have it yet, and don't experience the symptoms described in this thread.

    Thanks for the heads up. That has improved thing with the browser so much it even loads this site quicker. Although mystified why it is a optional update which at first looked like there wasn't anything to install.

    I was getting loads of ie11 touch crashes, updated and now all my desktop crashes when i look at or do anything, even windows explorer. I'm doing a full wipe reset to see if that fixes it.

    I wasn't having crashes but after installing this optional update (that should be critical) IE is loading much smoother now.

    IE11 upgrade on surface RT has made my user experience hell. Microsoft yet again release something that kills almost everything that worked before the upgrade. Example - the back button seems to freeze but in fact needs a double click. The add new tabs moved from swipe top to bottom - Why?? favs don't display the same. Browsing is now like treacle. Home page setting is ignored and it seems to open last used web page lord knows why. Trying a check for updates today. The upgrade process took over 4 hours - if Microsoft really want to compete in the tablet market they have to fully emulate the I-pad experience for users. This surface is going out the window if it does not improve with updates in the next month. I used to love my surface until Microsoft f**kd it up yet again with totally crap upgrade.

    I haven't been having problems with IE or windows 8.1 in general I brouse and use pc with no problems. However I noticed that when I use youtube, it freezes on me when im using IE but when im using chrome it works fine. Its kinda strange cuz when I first upgraged to windows 8.1, it was working fine. It started to act up a little after I few weeks. I know I downloaded some upgrades yesterday but im not sure if that's the couse.

    I own a Vivotab RT and tried out Youtube yesterday. It crashed very often - I hope that MS will fix this problem.

    I suspect you're not closing the IE app all the way. In Metro, when you swipe down to close and app, you have to hold it at the bottom for approx.. 3 seconds for the tile to flip over. Then it is closed. Otherwise, it opens up where you left off.

    If IE11 works for anyone, please let us all know the secret. I teach CS at local college and not one student out of all my classes has not had continuous crashes. My guess is those who claim it works are from Microsoft.

    If you could let us know what you are doing when it crashes somebody could possibly provide more help. Since I turned on tracking protection lists I haven't had hardly any issues. I do have to disable it once in awhile for embedded videos and such, which slows things down a bit. But the only time I have trouble seems to be on WatchESPN. There is some random stuff once in awhile, but nothing "continuous".
