    Internet Explorer is much too slow.


    Hi !
    On my destop, Internet Explorer takes far too much time to open and I don't see why. The problem arised recently but I cannot remind of any event which could explain the situation. I know I can use Edge, which is a good browser, but I still like some I.E. features. I had a look on the settings but i didn't found anything unusual. Is there anyone who can give me some ideas on what I can do ? I would be grateful.

    1. By default, Edge is the default browser. Have you switched default to IE11 ?
    2. Open IE11 > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab at the top > click Reset... > OK when done.
    3. You said " The problem arised recently ....".
    Does that mean IE11 used to be running fine until recently ?
    If yes, do a system restore. Pick a date when IE11 was running fine as your restore point.

    Thank you davidhk,
    Point 1 - The system was uptodate
    Point 2 - I reset I.E. according to your instructions : the situation has not changed.
    Point 3 - As I made a repair install four days ago in order to solve other problems I have no restore point anymore.
    I am afraid I have no other solution than working with Edge.
    Regards

    Just to make sure..................
    You replied " Point 1 - The system was uptodate"
    I was asking if you have set IE11 as default browser.

    This may have no effect as well but no harm trying.
    Go to Programs and Features > left side, click Turn Windows features on or off > scroll to Internet Explorer 11 > UN-check the box > OK > reboot.
    Repeat the above steps BUT this time check the box > OK > reboot.
    See if it makes any difference.

    If no help, then use Edge until you find a solution.

    davidh,
    First, I apologize for the the mistake I made in the first point on my previous post : I.E. was set as the default browser.
    Now coming back to your last recommandation : I unchecked I.E. in Windows features, then I checked it again, infortunately without success.
    Thanks for your help !

    Well you could try installing a 2nd browser, like Chrome or Firefox, both of those are faster than IE11 just a option for you to consider.
