Disabling Add-Ons Prompt


S

Shoe

Windows 7 home premium, 64 bit, IE 10. I frequently get a prompt in
IE10 telling me I could speed up browsing by disabling add-ons. I
don't want to disable any add-ons and don't want to continue getting
this prompt. Instead of disabling add-ons, is it possible to disable
the prompt?

There is a hint here, on how to fix it. Maybe IE10 is the same.

"If you use Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), you might be aware of
new "Add-on Performance Advisor" feature. Its a new component
of IE9 which automatically and periodically checks for add-ons
which might slow down IE and lets you disable those add-ons
quickly and easily by showing a popup notification message
"Speed up browsing by disabling add-ons" at the bottom-center
of IE9 window
"

"You'll see "Tell me when the delay caused by add-ons exceeds:"
option. It would be set to 0.20 seconds by default. Click on
the drop-down box and set it to 10.00 seconds.
Click on "Done" button
"

HTH,

"Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I do this!"
"Well then don't!"

Seriously, the easiest way, in the long term, to disable annoying IE
behavior is to dump IE and get a better browser. That's not setting
the bar very high....
Actually, IE10 is one of the better browsers out there now.
Just sayin'.

I agree, but I've found some strange behaviour on my desktop (Win7Ult)
that doesn't happen on my laptop (Win7Pro).

Basically, when I click on a URL in a Usenet post, IE10 sometimes does
nothing, and I have to reboot to get it working again. When this
happens, one can try continuing to click on the link or on the IE icon,
and each time a new iexplore process is started but nothing appears on
the screen. Weird!

It keeps crashing on me, viewing a perfectly straightforward page
with only HTML and CSS, no scripting. The page is local on my
computer.

And to do that, just follow these simple steps:

1. Install Firefox (or your preferred alternate browser).

2. Click "Start Orb" and in the search box, type:
"Turn Windows features on or off"

3. In the "Windows Features" panel, remove the 'tick' next to
Internet Explorer 10. Click OK.

4. Good bye IE10 !

Has nobody else encountered this behaviour? After visiting some
websites tonight, apparently without problems, I clicked on the IE icon,
and after a wait nothing happened. I looked at processes in task
manager and sure enough, there were a dozen or more instances of
iexplore running. I started killing them, one by one, from the top, and
after all but 2 had gone my home page (Google) appeared normally, with a
brief message at the bottom saying that Windows had encountered a
problem with IE10 and had to close it. Somehow Win7Ult or IE10 is not
recovering properly.

At the risk of yet another knee-jerk response from lovers of IE, I'll
just point out that you do have alternatives that don't suffer from
this problem.

True enough, Stan, but I wondered if anyone else had suffered from this.
I think it's probably my installation. I used to see IE as a separate
uninstallable item in "Add/delete programs" and one could click on it
and select the "rebuild" option. Not, it appears, in Win7.

I see it in "Turn Windows features on or off".

Thanks, Gene. I never thought of that.
I've been fooled often enough in the past by programs being hidden in
there that these days I usually remember to think of it :)
