Don't know if this is the right place for this or not, but here it is. I have a ton of toolbars running without permission. I was (and still am) having trouble with IE 11 being slow, and freezing up. I'm running Windows 10. I Googled it and it seems to be the general concensus that it's add-ons. They say to disble unwanted toolbars, but how do I know what is unwanted and what i need? I don't care much for Edge, so I use Google. Don't know if I should run them together or not. Thanks in advance. :headscratch:

Hello redsox1,

 

I have a ton of toolbars running without permission.

 

 

Don`t like the sound of "tons" can you name  these toolbars, if they look dubious you will need the help of the malware experts.

 

To have Chrome as your default browser;

 

Unpin Edge from the taskbar and then make sure that Chrome is selected as your default browser in Windows "how to" here

 

If you want to use IE every now and then just type in IE the search field on the taskbar and it will come up as a desktop app, click on it and away you go.

Wife has Chrome. It changes things and deletes things (like Kaspersky Smart Money) all by itself. Too invasive for me.

It is difficult for us to help if you do not answer our questions redsox1, please post the names of the various toolbars for us to check out.

 

From your OP;

 

I was (and still am) having trouble with IE 11 being slow, and freezing up. I'm running Windows 10. I Googled it and it seems to be the general concensus that it's add-ons. They say to disble unwanted toolbars, but how do I know what is unwanted and what i need? I don't care much for Edge, so I use Google. 

 

 

So, If I am reading the above correctly you open IE, type in Google and then use Google as a search engine, if yes then no wonder things are slow, if no, do you have a Google shortcut on your desktop already.

 

The toolbars we have touched on above and we need to find out the names of these various toolbars, Bing being one such perhaps.

 

You don`t like Edge so limit its behaviour, you don`t like Chrome so removes it as an option, this leaves making sure that IE is set as your default browser in the app settings, unpinning Edge from the taskbar and creating a Google short cut on your desktop for quicker access.

 

Just so that you are aware, legitimate programs will often have what is called foistware attached to them and it is up to the end user to read all of the information on any download page before clicking "Download" legitimate software providers while being a pain are not doing anything illegal when doing this and it is up to the end user to make sure that they uncheck any ticks in boxes that come bundled with the software/program that you actually want.

Highlight each tool bar by right clicking on it, click on copy and then paste the url into your next reply, this does mean that you will have to keep the GTG page open throughout.

They are not toolbars redsox1, they are add ons/plug ins that are associated with IE, Adobe and Kaspersky, if they are not causing you any problems then they are best left alone.

 

What Are Browser Extensions or Add-ons 

 

What is a plug in

 

What is a toolbar

OK! Thought maybe they were causing "Webpage Not Responding" and "Recover Webpage".

If you disable all of the IE add ons IE may not work so lets check to see if we can find anything else that may be causing the isue;

 

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here,  this will provide us with information about any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

There is nothing shown to be running or stopped that should not be present meaning that the add ons concerned are related to IE and Edge.

 

You are shown to be using 55 % of your RAM capacity so would suggest that you check in Task Manager to see what is using it, copy/paste Task Manager into the search field on the taskbar then click on the Desktop App option in the drop down box and it will show you what is using up resources.

Try the steps below that were suggested on the MS forum;

 

1. Open Internet Explorer and click on the Tools button, and then tap or click Manage add-ons.

2. Disable all the add-ons.

3. Enable each add-on one by one and check the performance of Internet Explorer.

4. Once you find the add-on that is creating the problem, disable it in the Manage Add-Ons window.
