When on the internet go to your tools then tool bars then just uncheck the ones you don't use. You will have to go back after each change. That helps you see which one you stopped and you can change back if you want.

HOW TO ADDA FAVOUTITES TAB ON IE 11 AS FOUND IN IE8


If you right-click in the toolbar area (at the top where the favorite bar USED to be) you will see a small pop up with a few options. Click "Favorites Bar" and that should do the trick.

Alternatively, while in IE press the ALT key one time to reveal the Menu Bar. Select View > Toolbars > Favorites Bar

Hope that helps! adda-favoutites-tab-ie-11-as-found-in-vqnzrvnqlx14j4uj04fm0vdy-3-0.jpg adda-favoutites-tab-ie-11-as-found-in-vqnzrvnqlx14j4uj04fm0vdy-3-2.jpg

Explorer 8 keeps freezing every few minutes


My IE8 Keep Freezing

Although Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) allows you to
browse the Internet to view and download your favorite content, Microsoft\'s
signature browser may freeze or crash occasionally.

When IE8 freezes, the screen remains static and
the mouse and keyboard fail to respond.

A number of problems can cause freezing, but you
can solve most quickly and safely.

Add-ons and Plug-ins


Add-ons and plug-ins are programs that can make your
browser more interactive.

These software enhancements perform a variety of functions
such as displaying videos and three-dimensional (3-D) images, assisting with
file downloads and blocking pop-ups.


Occasionally, some of these programs can cause more harm
than good.

If they are outdated and incompatible with IE8, the browser
is likely to freeze and crash frequently.

Also, if add-ons are damaged or missing key components, they
can cause display errors.

Key add-ons -- such as Flash Player and Java -- are often
necessary for viewing Flash content, so it\'s a good idea to keep them updated.

Browser Cache

When you visit a Web page, view photos and videos and
download content, a record of these actions is stored on your computer in the
"Temporary Internet Files" folder.

This stored data can speed up the display of the Web pages
you visit most often, because IE8 can load them directly from your hard disk
instead of the Internet.

For the most part, browser caching can reduce bandwidth
usage and server load; some of the saved files can also cause problems,
however.

If you haven\'t cleared IE8\'s cache in a long time, the
browser may experience an overload that can cause freezing problems.

Viruses, Trojans and Spyware

Viruses, Trojan horses and spyware are damaging parasites
that can cripple your browser and cause a world of problems.

Many of these malicious programs install themselves on your
computer using a variety of surreptitious methods.

Once installed, they can alter system files and processes,
****** your browser, redirect searches and cause IE8 to freeze or crash.

Trojan horses, which often disguise themselves as rogue
anti-spyware and anti-virus applications, are famous for employing such
tactics.

This type of program is designed to trick you into buying
bogus security software, often redirecting your browser to the purchase site --
if it doesn\'t crash first.

Solutions


Always install third-party plug-ins from reputable sites.


Some plug-ins are secretly packaged with viruses and
spyware, so check the credibility of the site from which you\'re downloading
content before trusting them with your browser.

Clearing IE8\'s cache is often an essential troubleshooting
step that can improve its performance. How often you do this can vary, but
every week should suffice.

To clear the cache, click "Tools" on the IE8
toolbar and select "Internet Options" at the end of the drop-down
list.

Under "Browsing history" on the
"General" tab, click the "Delete" button.


Make sure the box next to "Temporary Internet
files" is checked, then click "Delete" at the bottom of the window.

If your browser still experiences problems, Microsoft
recommends resetting it from the "Advanced" tab in the "Internet
Options" window.

Keep in mind that performing this troubleshooting step
restores the browser to its original, freshly installed state; it does not,
however, delete your favorites, feeds and Web slices.

Running an updated anti-virus or anti-malware program on a
daily basis can remove malicious programs that are likely to diminish your
browser\'s performance.









Stop IE8 From Freezing Up




Internet Explorer 8, or IE8, is a Web browser that allows
users to connect to the Internet.


When the program freezes, all of the pages in progress on
the screen will stop responding.

If your IE is freezing, there are a few things that you can
do.


Common issues reside in the computer\'s RAM size, out-of-date
software and an overloaded cache.

You can fix the freezing and get your browser working with
little hassle.

Click the "Start" button and then click the "Search" box.

Type "Windows Update" into the search bar and
press the "Enter" button.


Click on the "Windows Update" icon from the menu.

Click the "Check for updates" button on the left
side of the menu.


Wait for the
computer to scan for updates.

Click the "Internet Explorer 8" update from the
menu.


Click the "Install" button at the bottom of the
screen.

RAM

Check the amount of RAM on your computer.


Click the "Start" button and then click the
"Control Panel" option.

Click the "System and Maintenance" option.


Click the "System" button and then look under the
"Memory" icon for the amount of RAM you have installed.

Add more RAM to your computer if needed. Internet Explorer 8
runs best on more than one gig of RAM.

Clearing the History

Open the Internet Explorer 8 program by double-clicking on
its icon.


Click the "Tools" icon and then click the
"Internet Options" tab in the menu.

Click the "General" icon.


Click the "Delete" button.

Click on the "Everything" tab and then click
"OK."

Restart your browser.
