IE launching and opening of windows may become slow over time due to the presence of Add-ons like plug-ins and browser helper objects (BHO). You can see what you IE has installed by looking in IE at File>Tools>Manage Add..> It is best to remove or disable any add-ons you don't need

Another trick when opening a window in JavaScript is to open a window like:

var win = window.open('url', '', 'features');
win.name = 'winName';

instead of:

window.open('url', 'winName', 'features');


this will speed up window opening as IE does not look for any existing windows with the winName
