Speed up browsing by disabling add-ons

Scroll Prev Top Next More

You may occasionally receive the message as shown below asking if you wish to speed up Internet Explorer by disabling add-ons

 

disable_addons1_faq

 

This message appears when IE thinks that add-ons (things such as browser toolbars) are slowing down your browser (but does have a habit of appearing even if the browser speed is okay)

 

If you have lots of different toolbars and add-ons installed and you are finding that Internet Explorer is running slowly, then you can click Choose add-ons

 

The window below will appear where you can see which add-ons are loaded and which ones are slowing you down - and then click Disable for any you don't wish to load

 

disable_addons3_faq

 

In most cases (unless you specifically want to disable a particular add-on) you can ignore the message for now by clicking Ask me later, or permanently by clicking on the arrow next to Ask me later and choosing Don't disable
