I need ideas on how to optimize Internet Explorer 7

By MsUnderestimated ·
I recently have been experiencing very significant problems with IE7 being so very slow on my machine. I have a DELL Dimension 5150/E510 PC, and I'm running XP and use both IE & Firefox.

Recently my IE has been painfully slow, and I'm wanting to know if anybody knows of any tricks on how to optimize it.

My system has:

160 GIG Internal H/D
500 GIG External H/D
Intel Pentium 2
1 GIG RAM (I think)

... and I don't remember the other specs (will have to get them when I get home).

Does anybody have any suggestions?

You have a Pentium 2? Well, that answers your own question right there.

Well. assuming that IE7 ran Better before, here's what could have changed..

1) Malware/Virus infection
2) Misbehaving or corrupted broswer plugins

Check for virus/malware infection
Clear browser cache, cookies, history
Remove all plugins, toolbars, search agents, etc.
Reinstall IE7 if needed

It's true that running IE7 on a P2 is like trying to use a Riding Lawnmower as a daily commuter vehicle....not quite enough horsepower to do the job.
