    My PC is running Internet Explorer 9. Recently I've experienced delays of 5 - 10 seconds in getting some pages to load. Not aways, but often. I believe I have plenty of available capacity, so I don't think that's the issue. Have others experienced a similar problem with IE 9? Is it possible I need to change some settings? Sure would appreciate some help. Thanks. RCD

    Click Tools - Manage add-ons

    You probably have too many toolbars, extensions, accelerators, etc. enabled which are increasing webpage loading time.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I made a few changes, but it's still running slow on some sites. Any further ideas? RCD

    Have you tried disabling ALL add-ons? There may be only one interfering with normal browsing. This will at least tell us if add-ons are responsible or not. If all is well without add-ons, then you'll need to isolate the culprit.

    This seems to be working better. I'll watch it for a few days and if it continues to look OK, I'll mark it solved. Thanks! RCD

    You really do need to find the offending add-on though. You cannot run IE9 like that for long.

    Click Tools > Manage Add-ons.

    The Manage Add-ons window will appear.

    In the Manage Add-ons window, you can control which extension, toolbar, search providers, accelerators your browser is using.

    In the Manage Add-ons window, select Toolbars and Extensions. There you can see the toolbars and extensions that you have currently installed. Select the add-on you want to modify. If the toolbar or extension is enabled, in the lower-right part of the window you will see the Disable button. If you click on it, it will disable that toolbar/extension.

    Proceed with disabling one add-on after the other. Try browsing with that one add-on disabled after refreshing the page. If that doesn't change anything, proceed with another add-on. Shockwave Flash Object is an example of what you can start with.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I heard something similar yesterday and have tried it and seen improved results. I'm waiting a day or two to see if this gets resolved satisfactorily and then I'll mark this as "solved." Thanks again. RCD
