    Thank you for your advice rollisduke
    I am not in lack of browser, it is just that I like some I.E. features that I have not found in others until now.
    I do not know Mozilla but I already use Chrome from time to time.
    At the end, I still have Edge to do the job.

    I use IE11 most of the time, its runs pretty good, not as slow as your saying yours is, by the sound of it. Chrome is my 2nd browser, it does run faster than my IE11, but it always has, Same with Firefox, but I don't use Firefox. I can't stand edge, until MS updates its options. Having no addon ability is not a good option for me. If your IE11 is running real slow, check on how many things are loaded in your Add ons. Click the tool grear icon, then click Manage Add Ons menu. The more add-ons you install, the more it WILL slow down IE11. If you don't find any problems their, then go to your advanced tab in IE11 and hit the RESET button at the bottom. That will restore all of IE11's settings to default.

    Hi ! OldMike65,
    I already made a REST a few days ago and, following your advice, I removed the last add on I had, with no avail.
    Have a good day !

    I use IE11 on Windows 10 and have also found that after a recent Windows Update it became much slower.

    Before the update, it was fine.

    Now it is much slower to start and, in particular, frequently when you click a link to 'Open in new tab', it takes several seconds and IE will hang/freeze and become unresponsive. Very frustrating.

    Prior to the problem starting, IE was perfectly fast and responsive. I have a feeling this happened after the Windows Update that brought in IE11 settings protection http://winaero.com/blog/internet-exp...in-windows-10/.

    I found this forum and thread Googling to see if others were reporting the same problem.

    I agree. Something has made it very painful to use.

    Have you tried a different DNS address? If not give it a try.

    Thank you for your post brummyfan,
    As I am not an eagle in computer science, could you please explain what is a DNS address, where do I find it in I.E. and how to change it, and by what ?
    Regards.

    Sorry for that, right click wireless network icon in the task bar, Open network and sharing centre, click your Wi-Fi, click Properties, highlight Internet Protocol version 4 and click Properties, click Use the following DNS Address and enter Open DNS address or use google DNS address.
    OpenDNS: Primary(First line) 208.67.222.222, secondary(next line): 208.67.220.220
    Google DNS: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    I can state that a clean install of W10 TH2 takes the update in question

    and the lack of responsiveness is not present. So, it's some other issue. Removing IE11 and restoring/resetting has no effect. I have uninstalled/removed all plugins, even after trying iexplore.exe -extoff

    Getting tired of resetting this PC as the list of removed apps is longer than 5 rolls of Andrex.

    Internet Explorer is much too slow


    Hi ! brummyfan,
    Thank you for your explanations, I think I have unserstood now. My computer is currently set as "Obtain DNS server adress automatically." I have second thoughts to change this setting as it has been put in place by my Internet Provider. On top of that on my other computer, a laptop one, the setting is the same and I.E. is working perfectly well. Hence, I don't believe the reason of the slowness experienced on the laptop one is due to the DNS adress.
    So, I prefer to wait for the moment. Sorry for the work you have done.
    Regards
