Why is my Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) browser crashing, freezing and/or very slow?

Last Modified: 2015-09-16
All jokes aside about IE, I am having a weird issue with my IE11 on my main computer, but on other computers IE11 is fine.  As far as I know, it does not have to do with the particular version I have because one of the other computers has the same IE11 version as my main computer.  Some other computers have an older version of IE11 and they are fine as well.

I checked but there are no updates for my OS Windows 7.  I do not run plugins or anything on my IE11.  Its basically vanilla IE11 browser, but it crashes, freezes, or is VERY slow.  No other browsers are having these types of issues on my main computer.

What are my options in resolving this?  

I do website testing with IE11 so using a different browser isn't an option.

Let me know if you need any other information.
