My version of Microsoft Internet Explorer runs very slowly, especially when I need to open up a new window or click a pop-up link. It takes almost 15 to 20 seconds to START loading and return the window I want. However, when I use IE on computers in my school, it's far more quickly. What should I do to enhance my IE's starting up speed? (Its loading speed is okay, I just want to know about the suitable configurations to make.) Thanks.
Everyone wants to run their Internet Explorer smoothly and quickly on their computers, while after a certain period of time, a quick Internet Explorer could get slow due to lots of reasons. Hence, you have to maintain it after driving it for days. Here are 6 ways for you to check the slow Internet Explorer.
If you're not using the newest version of Internet Explorer, upgrade it to the latest one. Usually, the newest one offers improved functionality and performance, as well as better compatibility for programs.
Check the add-ons you have installed on the Internet Explorer. If there are ones you don't use or don't work well, disable them alternatively. They may slow down the IE browser, though they perform differently.
During the time of using Internet Explorer, some settings of it may have been changed. Reset it to the original. Internet Explorer always works well at the very beginning when we use it. So reset it to the default by clicking Tools > Internet Options to access the Reset button to revert all IE settings to default.
If all the operations on your computer get slow, there may be virus attacks, and you'd better run a virus scan on your computer to clear the spyware. That could destroy your Internet Explorer.
If you never clear the temporary files on your Internet Explorer, it's the right time for you to do it now. Do it as the following steps:
Open Internet Explorer > Choose Internet Options from the Tools menu > Click the General, Under Temporary Internet Files, Click Settings > Click View Files > Delete selected files. That's OK.
Slow web surfing could be the result of a bad or slow Internet connection instead of an issue with the Internet Explorer browser. Make sure you check your Internet Connection speed to isolate this cause for possible slow internet browsing.
