internet Explorer 9 slow to respond RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've tried the fix mentioned in the reply to IE 8 slow and it has helped to a large degree but it is still slow on some websites and also sends me to a website called "freecause.com". It has done this a couple of times since I applied the aforementioned fix. Is there anything else I can do? Any advice would be appreciated. Ray Phelan.

  • Hi,

     

    There are many factors to affect the Internet Explorer slowly such as third party add-ons, applications or virus. You can refer to the following methods to narrow down the issue.

     

    1. Perform a Clean Boot and disable security software or firewall temporarily.

    2. Run IE with no add-ons.

     

    Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (with no add-ons)

     

    3. If you use any proxy, reset or clear it.

     

    a. Open "Internet Explorer" -> Under "Tools" -> select "Internet Options" -> Click on the "Connections" tab -> Click "LAN Settings".

    b. In the proxy settings area, please click the "Advanced" button, and delete any entry in the "Exceptions" section.

    c. Click "Start" ->type cmd in search box -> right click cmd and run as administrator.

    d. type the following command:

     

    proxycfg –d

     

    4. Use hijackthis to remove unused items

    5. Update the network adapter from the manufacture's site manually and confirm with your ISP about your bandwidth.
