A recent Microsoft Update released on Tuesday, 11 February, 2014, appears to be causing the LMS to crash or freeze while using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11.) Security Update for Microsoft Windows KB2909921 is the update causing the issue.
However, uninstalling this update on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PC's seems to fix the problem.
After uninstalling KB2909921, users must also disable automatic updates to IE 11 until the issue is resolved by either Microsoft and/or Blackboard.
To uninstall KB2909921, follow the steps outlined http://lmssupport.rpi.edu/update.do?artcenterkey=126
