IE excellorator,, will it slow down load...

By pzide ·
Will it slow down the loading of Vista on boot or the launching of IE itself? My PC has 2 GB of memory and it is max'ed out. I do not want to slow it farther.

If it slows IE down, uninstall it.

If you have "maxed out" (fully utilizing) all your RAM in Vista, then adding any additional programs is going to entail the use of Virtual Memory.

That of course would mean that it would slow your system down...unless of course, you are already over the "max" and don't know it.

I'd say buy 4GB of RAM and don't worry about it.

It's possible. I've heard of default loads of just the OS taking 1GB of RAM.

If he has Symantec AV/SS loading and hogging memory, as well as other apps...he might be sucking up 2GB quite easily.

All depends on what is in his prefetch and startup.

Sidenote: I've seen multi-tab sessions of Firefox take over 500,000K of RAM. I did it the other day lol :^0
