Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

1 Answer

The program runs VERY S L O W LY and drags the whole computer down with it. Even if you exit IE 8, the computer remains slowed (progressively slower at each start up) until you shut it off. Disconnect it from the wall sockets for more than a minute, plug it back in, and restart. Then the computer is normal . . . until you open IE again. Now, in addn to the above, IE is reporting that it has experienced a problem (no doo-doo, huh? what was your first clue) and needs to close. I have good AV ESET NOD V4 on computer. But all is not well in Denmark. D.R. Lee Houston

    Are you saying that doing the restore will wipe out existing updates and they would need to be restored as a result? This problem has lasted, in varying degrees of severity, for almost a year. Today I went in and shut off a couple-three tool bars but the problem persisted. There is no "run w/o add-ons" button, or I would click it. Does restore serve that same purpose?
    This computer runs every day and is shut off every night. I keep it's Windows pgrms updated. ESET helps in that regard. I defrag'd about two weeks ago.

    I did as you suggested to both my main computers. The one in my office is much less monked up than the other. It has finished its run through and seems to be hoppin n boppin.

    The other is still wading thru Anti-malware Bytes (boy, does it!) preparatory to doing the disc clean up and defrag. I am NOT going to stay around and wait for that b*. If this was A-mB's quick scan mode, I'd hate like hell to see the "full scan". Maybe when I retire. There 55 min. later, I just heard it go Bing-bong.

    Carumba. Anyhow, "looks like you do good work" THANKS!!

Restart your computer. Start up Internet Explorer. Go to tools - options - for advanced user tab. There are two restore buttons. Click on both. One of them will ask to delete personal settings. I'd like to check this box and click restore. Restart Internet Explorer. Go at tools - options (again). At the center of the general tab, at the history area choose settings and set the disk space about 50-100MB no more.
This was the most complicated part of the recovery. After this I suggest you to make a disk clean up at your system, defragmentation and at last a windows update in order to get the critical updates.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Partical incompatability-messed up whole computer-freezes,internet messed up-wont let me delete program out-message keeps appearing!!!


I, myself have had nothing but problems when I downloaded Internet Explorer 9! I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! ). For some reason, once you start using Google Chrome browser, it is best to simply avoid Internet Explorer! I use Google Chrome & love it! I also use Mozilla Firefox! Sometimes we must use Windows IE since it is the browser which came with the computer. But I would avoid IE 9 and just not download it again once you are rid of it! No matter how much Windows/Microsoft tells you that you need to download it! Hope you have your computer running efficiently again! arjay8tch (Richard Holt)

How do I get IE 8 icon on my desktop


Go to the installation directory. It is probably C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer.
Look for a file there called iexplore.exe.
Right click on that file.Then use the "Create ShortCut" menu pick! That creates the shortcut. Last step: just drag the shortcut to your desktop. Done!

Are you getting error message that reads " Either you dont have latest Java version or flash to run the videos.

As the problem with the IE 7.0 and IE 8.0 is related to cookies comes from the videos websites.

I would recommend you to rollback the IE to IE 6.0.
