Troubleshooting Internet Explorer 11 In Windows 7
Internet Explorer 11 is generally never averse to add-ons, videos, graphics and plug-ins especially when they are Microsoft’s very own. It is only when third party add-ons are installed that Internet Explorer either does not respond or responds slowly. More often, some of the content is not displayed correctly on the pages. For most of these problems you can refer to the Microsoft Windows 7 Support.
The first rule to running internet explorer smoothly is to avoid loading it with too many toolbars. It is best to disable them even if they are offered such as the AVG toolbar, Google toolbar etc. They waste screen space and can eat up a big chunk of the memory. If you experience problems with Internet Explorer responding slowly or even stopping before opening the home page, then you can follow these steps to troubleshoot it:
- Go to ‘Internet Options’ and to the ‘General’ tab
- Select ‘Browsing history’ and then click on ‘Settings’
- A warning message could pop up indicating that the disk space allocated for the temp files is too high
- Choose about 250 MB to be used at ‘Disk space to use’ and click ‘Ok’ two times
- The old temporary data will be deleted by IE and the load time will improve
In any case you can refer to the Microsoft Windows 7 Support for all of the above steps. Disable the GPU or the accelerated graphics if you see that internet explorer opens and closes immediately. For this you have to:
- Go to ‘Control Panel’
- Click on ‘Internet Options’
- Open ‘Advanced’ and check the ‘Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering’
- Click on ‘Ok’ and launch IE again
Internet Explorer add-ons troubleshooting involves the need to verify if you have recently installed a software or program. You must have added some toolbar or plug-in. Just disable the add-ons to save time. If you are still facing problems refer to the Microsoft Windows 7 Support through microsoft-customersupport.com or 1-888-308-2550 for some comprehensive steps.
