WptBHO extension is Enabled (32-bit)
CIEHook Object extension is Enabled (32-bit)

I'm only running wptdriver.exe at startup.

Combinations I have tried - (which may not be correct):
- wptdriver.exe & urlblast.exe at startup, with urlblast.ini & wptdriver.ini
- only wptdriver.exe at startup, with wptdriver.ini & urlblast.ini

I just wanted to update the thread with my issue.

When I downgraded IE11 to IE10, WPT worked fine. There is something definitely going on with IE11, which I'm not able to determine.

Any updates on this? For me too, IE 11 is the problem but our main target browser is IE 11

Have you tried the latest wptdriver (you shouldn't use urlblast for IE 11 - it is deprecated and pretty crufty)? Here is the info on updating to the latest and greatest: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.org/docs/private-instances#TOC-Updating-Test-Agents
