Why does my internet explorer takes 10+ seconds to respond to a click and another 10+ seconds after that to start searching?. I get this behavior even on a checkbox click. I have AVG installed

sounds like you have problems with your PC. Try the same site on another PC on the same network. In the long run it's often easiest to wipe your PC and get a clean install.

This is not the response I was hoping to get. If I wipe the system it will take days to get it back to the point where I could do my work

You can back up data and such but be sure you scan it well before putting it back on your cleaned up PC. It's never an attractive option to wipe the PC but you can spend days trying to clean-up virus/spamware & such and be no better off.

If you have IE9 I'd just back that out as they mentioned in the article you found. It's pretty new so there's bound to be some problems on various setups.

I guess you mean you have to buy a hard drive to backup. If so that's a pretty good investment for your data. They are huge these days and come with backup solutions for a modest price.

I left my old system intact on that drive. I need to install a bunch of applications and databases. It will be a while before I get all that done. Until I do I will need to pop back to the old system to get things done. I am off to a bad start already.

It turned out that after investing in a hard drive and reinstalling windows and setting up back my system I had the same problem. In a desperate move I assigned my DNS IP address in my TCP properties and all of a sudden  my system was fine. I am so pissed
