Another issue I am having is getting a 'Windows low on memory' warning. Have had it about two or three times and it is IE11 that is using up the memory. I have 8GB RAM and had no problems in the past with as many or more tabs open.
Something has happened to IE11's performance recently and I am surprised there is no fix from Microsoft yet.
Given the recent announcement about the end of life for earlier IE versions, I do seriously wonder if IE11 has been deliberately hobbled to make people switch to Edge? I have tried Edge and it works fine with no slow down or hanging issues opening news tabs and windows. Just like IE11 used to work until a few weeks ago...
I have found the problem thanks to Googling and finding http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/ind...686#msg1721686
It's not IE11 that's to blame, it's something with the latest version of Trusteer Rapport software (recommended by many banks for online banking security). I uninstalled it and IE11 is now back to normal. Trusteer Rapport has been fine in the past.
So check to see if you're running Trusteer Rapport. That may be the problem.
Thank you Jay Kay
Rapport uninstalled, internet explorer 11 is flying again.
Edit: Yes, Rapport is the cause for me. It complains about a file signature and won't install without ignoring SmartScreen. There is a post on the IBM Trusteer website about the issue to the effect that they are 'working with Microsoft to arrive at a solution'.

I also had this problem with increasing regularity, normally triggered by a new WIN 10 update.
I started noticing an error message with some websites that stopped responding that claimed the site has stopped responding because a long script was running. I could not find out what this meant, so in desperation, as a result of many other issues with my MS Account profile, I reset the PC. The other problems cleared but not this one. I decided then to just take the bull by the horns, and create a brand new profile, deleting ALL previous profiles. ( NOTE: If you do this, you need to have backed up all your files on another drive or in the cloud!)
Just about ALL the issues I had with slow responses from browsers are now gone! ( It did not matter in the end every browser I tried did the same. I think it was because I was automatically "importing" favourites into each browser, thus introducing the problem into all the other browsers.)
I am now starting again as it were. I did export IE settings and browsers into a file so I know which sites I want to restore, BUT have NOT automatically imported them again. Please note that in MS Edge under [Settings/Advanced settings, there is a tick box ticked to Import favourites. I specifically unticked this box, and did the same in IE 11 and in Chrome.
So far peace reigns! I have no idea what is/was corrupt in the favourites folder.
One of the casualties of the clean reset deleting all my sw was IBM Trusteer. Yesterday, I restored my Internet banking sites on Edge, IE 11 and on Chrome.
I could not install install trusteer. The re-install attempt failed, so probably THIS was the key issues all along!
Now I would normally ALWAYS make ssure IB was secure! We are victims of our own in-built habits aren't we.
We live and learn!
Ignore this post, I just missed my Notifications!
I referred this issue to my Bank but they are not aware of any problems and are unable to confirm whether IBM & Microsoft are working together to find a solution. Furthermore, as Rapport is not the Bank's software, they have suggested that I refer the matter direct to Trusteer Rapport's support desk to resolve my issue.
Can anyone provide a link that refers to the post (referred to above) on the IBM Trusteer website that confirms they are working with Microsoft to arrive at a solution?
You don't need to uninstall Rapport completely. Do the following:
1. Open Rapport Dashboard
2. Go to 2nd page
3. In Security Policy section, click "Edit Policy"
4. Enter the User Approval code (not case sensitive)
5. Click OK
6. In the Security Policy edit screen, the 2nd entry down, "Validate Website SSL Certificates," change drop-down option to "Never"
7. Click "Save" at lower left
8. Start IE 11 as usual.
It is no longer slow for me.
This preserves Rapport (except for the SSL Certificates check) and is easier to undo than uninstall/reinstall, if it doesn't work for you. I would still get the fixed version of Rapport (when available), because the Certificate check is important.
