    Internet Explorer is extremely slow

    I'm using Windows 10 latest updates and internet exp. version 11. (exact vestons see screen shots)
    About 6-8 weeks, internet explorer has become so slow, and hangs up, so often I literally can not use it.
    simple tasks such as hitting Google, IE will just hang taking 45-50 seconds (firefox will pop right up
    please do not tell me "just use firefox, or chrome, that you switched years ago, the point is...this should
    work properly...there is an issue here I'd like to fix...I too prefer firefox btw)/
    Sometimes typing in a web address, it never appears. (see hang1.jpg). A lot of times when this occurs
    I have to reboot, or go into task manager and end task on all IE instances.

    I have not made any changes apps, software or hardware wise other than keep up with the latest updates weekly.

    Below are screen shots (links to already attached files) of several settings etc. that may be relevant.
    let me know if I can provide any other OS or IE information.

    Please advise!

    After the Anniversary Update & post updates, it frequently freezes on my pc, until I close it, run CCleaner and re-open it.
    I think they're just trying to force us to use Edge, instead.
    Personally, I don't care for Edge and use Chrome most of the time, now.

    it could be windows attempting to force edge. I had it disabled for months, then a few weeks ago, I re-enabled it thinking by it being turned off, this was causing the slowness. My issue begin well after I disabled edge, turning it back on did not help. I found and ran CCLeaner...very thoroughly. I also ran my scripts I made (renamed the bat to txt for uploading here)


    The issue still exists after reboot.

    The below link is what I used to disable EDGE, back in July. I used the download tool, it said to be sure, once done,,,I could never get it back.

    How to Remove Microsoft Edge from Windows 10

    After I started experiencing IE slowness, in November, I re-enabled edge, by doing the below.

    How To Reinstall Microsoft Edge In Windows 10

    Edge begin working as it did before. Because my issue begin months after disabling edge, and re-enabling did not resolve it, I do not think it is related, but thought I should mention this

    I'm waiting for them to kill off IE in Restone or the next major update after it.
    The one I've noticed that's weird is a Realtek LAN is faster than Intel LAN is in things outside of any web browser. My download speed on my current skylake based pc with Intel Lan only get's up to 16mbps download speeds in Steam, Origin, GOG Galaxy, Uplay or any other modern app, etc.
    On my old pc with Realtek LAN my download speeds were alway's between 200-116mbps download speeds in everything.
    That's with the same basic network tweaks and Windows set to not reserve bandwith to 80 %, like it's set at stock values.

    NIC CARDS, have nothing to don with my issue. and that limit reserve bandwidth? I e toyed with that about 20 years has no effect. That's regardless.... I have an issue here, it's not to do with NICS OR Bandwidth, or which browser is better or is I.E. going away.
    IE is here, now.... and most corps wont be jumping on win 8, much less 10, or an OS newer that has no IE
    Can we please keep this thread on focus?

    I wasn't talking about a NIC card. I was referring to onboard motherboards LAN differences.

    Random thoughts:

    Reset IE: (Internet Options/Advanced/Reset)

    Run sfc/scannow

    Disable your add-ons for IE to guage effect.

    Are any errors listed for IE in Event Viewer ?

    Consider System Restore

    Edit: Just noticed "Roboform Tool Bar" Disable to see if any effect.

    I've reset ID, run sfc, disabled addons (see ieaddons1.jpg, ieaddons2.jpg and ieaddons3.jpg), I've tried a couple of restore points.
    Now, I do not claim to be and event view expert. I know its there and can a little more than stumble through it. I have a couple of custom filtered reports or views. Below are a couple of red events that don't mean much to me in attached EV1.txt. I copied and pasted, I'm not aware of a better way to report out of this tool.

    are there any tips n tricks in event view to set up better custom reporting, and reporting and exporting?
