Win 8/explorer 10 slowdown

  1. #11


    Try turning off the IE10 SmartScreen filter. This will keep IE10 from querying the Microsoft database of known good and bad websites "before" you actually go to the website. Now, bear in mind that Microsoft has developed this feature in an attempt to lessen the possibility of your PC getting infected by you inadvertently visiting a malicious website; however, if you have your anti-virus and/or malware protection up-to-date, you should be OK with it off.

    >>That is one feature I overlooked but it makes sense. Thank you for your advice; my wife and I are older than dirt and our surfing habits are very conservative.

    Ok. Let's try something else. In IE10 go to Tools > Manage AddOns and disable (or remove) everything. See if that helps. My IE10 is reasonably fast (most of the time) but I still prefer Firefox. Here' a few screenshots of my IE 10 addons:

    My MSIE 10 changes. Sometimes it is slow and others it is fast. I cannot be specific to what circumstances prevail at the times to find a common denominator.
    Your addons are few.
    I do not purposely allow them but they have accumulated.
    Is there a way to start over or remove them? I know they can be disabled.
    Right now the machine is zipping along as though there was no issue.
    Please see the attachment.
    Silverlight is in Ccleaner when I click the registry cleaner to analyze. There must be 30 invalid entries for it. Because I never use a registry cleaner, I never cleaned it. I wonder if it would be a good idea to use Revo to remove Silverlight.

    2 ways to uninstall Add-on in IE10.
    1. Uninstall thru Programs and Features
    2. If the add-on in not listed in step 1. Use Autoruns mentioned in earlier post, right click on it and select delete

    uninstall addons


    I went to programs and features and saw a list of programs but no Add-ons listed. I also saw Windows features there but no Add-ons listed.

    I have read the previous posts but cannot find auto runs. Is that the feature that allows you to stop a program from loading at startup?

    Yes and it does a lot more.

    I did give you the link to download from Microsoft site. It is part of SysinternalsSuite from Microsoft, Here's the link again and read the description on that site, you'll know what it does:
    Autoruns for Windows

    Run it as Admin and click on Internet Explorer Tab, there'll be a list of Add-ons, Uncheck to disable, right click and select delete will delete.

    Cheers
