why does my internet explorer run so slow
Thank you for the update. Since the initial troubleshooting steps didn't help, let's check if the issue is caused by a corrupted user profile. User profile can become corrupted because of a lot of things. One of which is when an upgrade or an update took
place. The good thing is you can always create a new user profile and transfer the files from your old user profile to the new one. Try to create a new user profile with administrator privileges or if you have a spare admin account, you can log in to that account and create a new user account. Once you have verified that the issue was due to a corrupted user profile, you can transfer your data from the old user account to the newly created one. If the issue persists, we suggest that you restore Windows back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point.
Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you create a restore point manually. Restoring wonвt affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made. To restore your PC to an earlier point in time, follow these steps: Press Windows key + R and type Control Panel. Type Recovery in the search box and select Recovery. Click on Open System Restore, and then follow the instructions. Note: If youвre not seeing any restore points, it might be because system protection isnвt turned on.
To check, go to the Control Panel, search for Recovery, and then select Recovery Configure System Restore Configure, and make sure that the Turn on system protection option is selected. Let us know how it goes. Since it is affecting all browsers, have you checked your connection speed? Maybe all of them are slow because your internet connection itself is what is slowing you down. Also, if you do visit sites that use Java applets, you should disable Java in your web browsers (via the Java applet in the Control Panel). If you don't use Java applications on your local machine as well, you should just uninstall Java in its entirety. If you don't use it, there are just too many security holes constantly being found to justify its presence on your machine.
In checking for outdated Java installations, did you look through the Add/Remove Programs (XP) list or Programs Features (Vista later) to find them? Some Java updates do not actually remove some of the older installations. I can't count the number of times I have gone to work on a system to find that there are multiple older versions of Java on the same machine. Anything older than version 7 Update 25 needs to go. You can also run any of the browsers without any addin/plugins loaded to see if that makes a difference. If it does, there is a problem with one or more plugins for the browser that needs be (manually) tracked down and eliminated or fixed.
