W7 Home with IE 9. 6 GB of memory. 500 GB of storage with plenty of available space. IE is very slow when attempting a search. I've done the following: SFC Scan, WD Lifeguard the drive via extended test (OK), MEMTEST (OK), Malwarebytes (OK), Norton installed but also ran CCleaner and Registry clean (OK). Have done most of what MS suggests for slow IE. Did not help. Google Chrome works well and seems correctly responsive. Any ideas on what else I can try to make IE more responsive? When I say slow....it can take minutes to go to a website. Google is the site set as HOME. It does come up OK but after then requesting a search, it stalls ...but again not so when using Chrome. Have not tried Firefox.
