IE 11 Performance Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have installed IE 11 and its cosuming too much memory. It literally hangs and also make other apps slow. I have tried reinstalling , disabling addons, resetting, using software rendering,  but doesnt seems to be improving the performance. I tried using IE10 from debugging mode, its fast and fine. So the issue is definitely with IE11. Please assist.

    Thanks

  • The high memory appears immediately when you open IE, or gradually increases when you’re using IE?

    Since  issue only occurred in IE11, I would first suggest you install all the latest updates for IE 11, keep the latest flash player for IE 11.

    Or try the troubleshooter, locate to Control Panel>Troubleshooting>Programs>Internet Explorer Performance

    If doesn’t work, then you can use process explorer to view the detailed processes under iexplorer.

    Process Explorer v15.40

    And when you found that the IE is using  high memory, you can open task manager>Processes, then right click internet explorer, create dump file, then upload the dump file here.

  • Hello,

    The memory usage gradually increases and restarting IE doesnt always help and I will have to reboot the system I have all updates for IE and Flash player also is updated. Also I cannot find IE troubleshooter in Control Panel>Troubleshooting>Programs .

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the delay, what version of Windows are you using now? up to now, only IE 11 has a bad performance in your system, please check the system requirements, verify if it meets the requirements.

    If it meets the requirements, then use process explorer I mentioned in the first reply to view the detailed process

  • Hello,

    I use Windows 7 Professional 64 bit SP1 (updated), RAM 4GB, Processor 2.3 GHZ i3 .  Only IE 11 has performance issues. When I start IE it works fine but gradually it starts to take more memory and thus affecting other apps also. Than I have to close IE or maybe a reboot inorder to make other apps work. I have taken a dump of IE but the filesize is too large to upload here , 700MB+ . Checked process explorer and now  IE seemed fine in that although its slow.
