    If you're using 8.1, you have IE11, which came with it. IE10 came with 8, not 8.1.

    Win 8 was installed on the machine. I downloaded and installed 8.1. IE 10 is on my machine. Can I download IE11 and see if the situation improves?

    Right-click Computer > Properties and make sure you do have Windows 8.1 installed. It sounds like 8.1 didn't install, as it also installs IE11 as part of it. I've upgraded 8 to 8.1 on numerous pc's and they all have IE11 on them now.

    You are correct. I downloaded 8.1 but didn't get IE11.


    Sorry for the delay in keeping in touch....
    I downloaded 8.1 and now have IE11. The 20-30 second delay in loading sites still persists. Cleaned out temp files, reset IE but no help.

    I found that IE11 was so agonizingly slow on my 8.1 that I switched to the Chrome browser which works very well. That was a month ago. Tried IE11 again recently and it is still unusable for me.
