    My IE 10 Win 8 really slow & locks up - Tried Chrome


    Hello,

    For some reason my IE 10 on Windows 8 has become almost unusable.

    It crashes & is really slow.

    I did scans for viruses & stuff.None found.

    So, I am using Chrome to post this & it works good.


    I even restored to factory default (Full Install) & that didn't help.

    Hence the change to using Chrome.

    Just thought I would share this.

    Have just gotten over similar problem on win 7 64 bit - that began TODAY - is the shockwave addon - someone not playing nice after updates - try disabling it via manage addons. is not win 8 but may be the culprit ...

    Tried it.
    Didn't help.
    Maybe new Windows Updates will help.
