Re: IE11 & Speed Up Browsing

Hi.  I have long ago abandoned IE 11 for either google Chrome or Mozilla FireFox.  Maybe try those as alternatives.  It's less of a headache, at least for me.  Cheers!

Hi Mike, and latterly Kimsan,


Yes, agree, this annoying pop-up notification is really a pain. I originally thought it was something to do with Flash being incorporated within IE11 on Windows 10, but after investigating the problem more deeply it appears to be a performance issue relating to, what Microsoft perceive to be, slow add-ons. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the way to disable this is:


1. Press the Windows key and type (without the quotes): 'gpedit' and press  Enter on the 'Edit Group Policy, Control Panel' (this may be phrased differently in Windows 7, but essentially the same);


2. Down arrow to 'User Configuration' (this tree should be open, so continue down the list);


3. Down arrow to 'Administrative Templates' and right arro to open the extended tree;


4. Down arrow to 'Windows Components' and right arrow to open the extended tree;


5. Down arrow to 'Internet Explorer' (don't open the extended tree here);


6. Tab once and then down arrow to 'Turn off add-on performance notifications' and press the Enter key;


7. Tab twice to the options, it should be set to 'not configured', so down arrow twice to 'disabled';


8. Tab to 'OK' and press Enter key;


9. Close the Group Policy Editor.


Hopefully this will resolve your problems.

Hi All,


Running Windows 7 & IE11.  I dan't quote the message exactly, but do any of you recall getting a message when you 1st open IE11 that says something like, to speed up browsing you can disable add-ons...., then you press, Alt + N, to get a couple of options?  What I'm wanting to know is , does anyone recall if there's an option to not show this message any more?  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

Take care.
