Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
After a very quick Google search with "internet explorer 9 disable speed up browsing notification" as the search words, I found a way to completely disable it if you have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate.
It requires access to "Local Group Policy Editor" or "gpedit.msc."
Once in "Local Group Policy Editor," on the left side navigation go to...
"Local Computer Policy" --> "Computer Configuration" --> "Administrative Templates" --> "Windows Components" --> "Internet Explorer"
... search for "Disable add-on performance notifications," then double-click on it, and set it to "Enable."
Apply all the change and you are good to go. You may have to restart or log off for the change to occur.
That's really helpful - I've been having those blasted notifications come up all the time too. Thanks Leo
Actually, I got it to stop at the first notice by clicking on the drop-down arrow on the "Ask me later" button and there was a selection disabling the notification. I apologize that I can't be more specific but since it is no longer coming up, well... ;^)
Just in time! I was tired to see this message and I never take care of it.
I like your answers: not too complicated or too long to read, and you also explain "why".
This is a sign of quality!
Thanks for that Leo, I usually click Ask me later, which gets rid of it for a while but, like a bad penny, it always turns up again. I shall take your advice next time it appears as the only add-ons I run are essential ones (non-essentials are disabled except for the rare occasion I need them). To check which add-ons are installed and whether they are enabled or disabled (in Internet Explorer 9) click on the cog icon at the top right corner of your browser window and then click on Manage Add-ons to see them broken down into categories. This does not however let you know how long they take to load.
MANY THANKS Leo... I too have had this problem and just 'disabled' it to get rid of it but now I will go further! I appreciate your brief and to the point answers - keep it up! Mabel.
Thanks Leo, I use IE occasionally and that message was driving me nuts...
Wow! I have to echol the prior comments about something that bugs you, but you just tend to ignore it after awhile. Thanks.
I don't use IE much, but this is a great tip!
Outstanding. Thanks for the answer to something that almost everyone wants to know. One of the attendees at my computer club meeting last Wednesday asked the question and I didn't have an answer for him. Now I do, as well as a suggeston that all of my members subscribe to Ask Leo!
