Hyper-V Switches and Bridges Interfering with IE 10 Performance


  • The tread I linked below is my original post describing my issue.  I have included quotes taken from the thread.

    This issue is got to be the strangest thing I have encountered on my own computer.  I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro and immediately IE 10 started behaving this way.

    I reboot Windows 8 Pro (for whatever reason), the computer boots, I log in and then go to the desktop and try to open IE 10 in desktop mode from a icon pined to the taskbar.  The icon highlights as it normally does right before a browser opens, but no browser opens.  The icon eventually reverts back and 2 to 4 minutes later a browser opens.  I've looked at the task manager and iexplorer doesn't start when I hit the icon on the taskbar.  The odd thing is that this happened right after I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows Pro.  If anyone has any ideas let me know

    So, the issue returned!  I have narrowed it down to either virtual switches and/or the network bridge created by Hyper-V in the Virtual Switch Manager.  After I created an External Virtual Switch linked to my WLAN card the issue began again.  I guessing that its the bridge since, as I understand it, that configuration is unique to creating an external virtual switch attached to WLAN card.  I also have not experienced this issue on any computer running Virtual Switches created by Hyper-V, however this is the first time I attached a virtual switch to a WLAN card.  I'll be moving this forum to the Hyper-V forums.

  • I went from Windows 8 to Windows 8 Pro, that shouldn't cause to many drastic issues since I am simply adding features.  Also, since the issue has been narrowed down to Hyper-V and the virtual network devices it creates I doubt that doing a clean install has would help.
