Is your Internet Explorer (IE) running slow on Windows 7? Have you not tried the newest version called IE 9? Is your system not secured from viruses and spywares? If the answer to these questions is in affirmative you may give a thought to optimizing your system to make its performance better. Unfortunately slow speed in IE has been experienced by many people who have started using Windows 7.
Undoubtedly slow performance of PC programs is intolerable. However, it is not just the IE browser that runs slow on Windows 7. Other browsers such as Opera, Chrome and Firefox have also been found to run slow due to various reasons. Sometimes users install Windows 7 in their old systems with low hardware specifications which causes such errors. At other times people who are fond of using too many add-ons in their browser suffer from slow browsing.
If you are looking to speed up Internet Explorer for your Windows 7 follow these simple guidelines:
* First of all clean computer up through a sophisticated Registry cleaning tool. The Registry repairing program will work to reduce Registry clutter and fix those errors which cause computer programs to crash frequently.
* Optimize your system by managing computer services, conducting a Registry defrag scan and cleaning system and browsers junk through a good system utilities program. If you are an expert computer user you may do these jobs manually.
* Go to the control panel settings and adjust ‘mouse’ settings. In the mouse settings Window click on the pointer options and make the pointer speed a little faster. This little act will give you a feel that your computer is running faster.
* Clear the IE cache: Whenever you are about to quit browsing clear the internet explorer cache to make it lighter and run faster on Windows 7.
* Clean temporary internet files and the IE history. A system utilities software can do this job automatically.
* Get rid of excessive toolbars: Excessive toolbars and add-ons are often found to be not only making the browser slow but also causing it to crash frequently.
* Disable integration with your download manager program. A download manager program usually integrates with your browser so that all downloads are cached automatically. However this causes Internet Explorer (IE) to run slow on Windows 7. Disable browser integration from the download manager program settings. Open download manager program, click Tools | Download Options. Click Browse Integration tab, uncheck Internet Explorer and click OK. Restart IE.

Type following command- “RunDLL32 ADVPack.dll,LaunchINF Section Java.in,UnInstall” (without quotes). Press ENTER. After successful uninstall, please restart your computer.
