This tutorial will show you how to open Internet Explorer 10 in No-Add-ons mode with add-ons turned off in Windows 7, 8.

By default, Internet Explorer 10 have add-ons enabled. Add-ons, also known as ActiveX controls, browser extensions, browser helper objects or toolbars, can improve your experience on a website by enabling content such as high-quality animations.
