Performance problems/slowdown wtih Internet Explorer 8?!?

I recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 and have noticed significant slow-down when using the internet. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Is this a known problem with IE8?

I never had any problem on IE7. I've got a Dell Inspiron 6000 if that might make any difference.

Hi,
IE8 runs slightly slower than IE7 due to the fact that it has more built-in security features and additional features. Also, some antivirus softwares and too much unused / accumulated data in the form of temporary internet files and cookies in your PC slow-down the browsing experience.

To clean up temporary internet files, click on the Tools button on the IE toolbar, select Internet Options from the menu which comes up. Then on the General page, under Browsing History section click on Delete button. Then you can select the items which you want to delete, then click on Delete> click on OK.

You can also try Google Chrome browser which is one of the fastest browser. Download link: http://www.google.com/chrome

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.

There are a number of reasons but mainly 2 kinds causing a PC running slow. Outdated hardware or poor system maintenance. If possible, try upgrade hardware configuration such as add more RAM etc. Otherwise try this program Speed up PC to diagnose & fix the slow pc for issues. Best regards!

Slow computer


Do a deep virus scan. Install and scan with Windows Defender (free from microsoft) you probably have a virus and or spyware slowing it down. After running those 2 times each, if it's not a lot better you will need a Tech to clean it up.

When I move my mouse over favorites, it is slow


After a great deal of searching and toggling many different options, I found a solution!

I am using Windows XP.
The option may be in a different place if you have some other version of Windows.

In Control Panel, Folder Options, View tab, scroll to the bottom and uncheck “Show pop-up description for folders and desktop items”.

I am not certain, but it also seems to have improved the general performance in Windows Explorer as well.

When you click on the home icon that is taking you to your homepage (Yahoo! is generally the default). IE isn't the greatest browser, anyway...try downloading Firefox. It's a lot better.
