After fighting with a new HP printer/scanner and finally getting it to work, I can no longer use IE (which won't "display any pages" or WatchGuard, my VPN client.
Chrome works fine and so does my Outlook email program. I'm using a Windows 8.1 Dell laptop. Can you suggest what I may have done to trigger this outcome? I hate to go through the restore point route which will force me to reload several programs. Would an upgrade to Windows 10 offer a solution?
Thanks in advance!

As this is dedicated Windows 10 forum, I think the general opinion would be “Give it a go!”
But why bother with IE if the alternatives work for you!

I agree with Dave, an upgrade would certainly benefit you. :)

davehc and Wolfie,
Thanks for your suggestion. Simply upgrading to Windows 10 resolved all problems with the two programs involved.
