IE 8 with parental controls extremely slow browsing
Posted on 2009-05-19
My client's computer is running Windows Vista 32-bit with all updates. I recently installed IE8. They use parental controls on their Family user account, but not on their Admin account. Browsing is fine on the Admin account, but is extremely slow, almost non-functional on the Family account. I created a third test account and confirmed that the cause of slowness is parental controls - browsing was fine without the parental controls and slow with it activite. I reset IE8 to defaults and deactivitaed add-ons. The active secuirty software is Norton 360 Version 3. Prior to IE8, the client reporting that web browsing with IE7 was a little slow with parental controls, but acceptable. Yesterday, I uninstalled IE8 to take them back to IE7 and there is some improvement, but still very, very slow browsing on the user account with parental controls. Any insight as to what might be done to improvie browsing performance would be appreciiated.
