Internet Explorer 11 - 'Interface not registered' Error when saving web page to favorites.

Date Published: 11/18/2013 8:28 AM

Upgraded from IE 10 to IE 11. When I save a web page to the favorites folder, the error message 'interface not registered' appears. If I revert to IE 10, the problem disappears. Web pages already in favorites will load OK. OS is 64 bit version of Windows 7.

After much fiddling, have found that if I run IE11 as administrator (click on start and input 'Internet Explorer' then run as administrator, the problem disappears. However, am the administrator on this account anyway. All quite puzzling.

Advice gratefully received.

    work around:

    Open local drive/users/your user name/favorites

    minimize window

    open IE11

    go to page you want to save in favorites

    minimize so you can see both windows on the desktop

    create a new folder or use the root /favorites and drag the address icon from IE11 to the favorites folder you have opened.


    I do not understand why this suddenly JUST started happening to me today. I have seen threads on this dating back to 2013 and even IE7 references. WTF MS come on I like to stick up for you but this is ridiculous.
