Pages with JavaScript open extremely slow IE 10/Win 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Few weeks ago, started noticing some pages opening extremely slow. Top 2 examples are nbcnews.com and oregonlive.com, with the commonality between the 2, lots of scripting (javascript). The sites don't allow me to scroll right away, takes about 20 seconds before that's available. The content is slowly loading, takes about 2 minutes to fully load. I am noticing a loading wheel next to the mouse pointer that is going nuts, appearing to process a large amount of info.

    I went through lots of different troubleshooting steps; below are some of the things I tried:

    - Reset IE/clear cache/ temp files

    - Ran disk optimization

    - Ran Full antivirus scan, with computer coming up clean

    - Logging in under another user

    - Compatibility mode

    - Trying the sites on another windows 8/ IE 10 computer on the same network-works just fine

    - Installing chrome, same problem

    - disabling scripts on pages from internet options, the sites load quick, but half of the content is missing.

    The only thing I've done that seemed to have fixed the issue temporary is uninstalling and re-installing a cumulative update that MS released last month. The sites were loading quickly right of the bat, after the update was re-installed. Later though, it ended up getting worse again. Also,  I compared the results from the metric at (https://www.webkit.org/perf/sunspider/sunspider.html) and on the troubled computer, results show Total of 575ms response time, while on another computer, it's 120ms response time.

    Please advise if there is anything else I can (besides resetting the OS) to resolve the issue. Thanks!

    Use the Developer Tools to find out where your delay is.  FWIW the NBC one was noticeably slower opening than the other.
