    Great walkthrough for IE users. There is actually an awesome feature in IE9 that tells you which of your add-ons is slowing down your browsing. Learn more at:

    Mmmm. I find the “awesome” feature that tells me which add-ons is slowing browsing down EXTREMELY irritating 🙂 The add-ons that are loading is what I want to load but IE9 persists to ask me with start-up if I want to disable add-ons. Except if I am missing something somewhere, this annoying feature alone is enough to make me gravitate to Firefox…. I really do not want to be asked this every time?

    How do you disable an add-on that is not compatible with IE9 and causes it to crash. It doesn’t run long enough to access the menu.

  • Thomas

    Mind you, one just increases the total load time in the dialog box to make it go away.

    ofcourse it is very necessary to dis-able or un-install un-wanted addons from your browser, they will always mess you, and thanks for the cute guide regarding this, because no one talk more abount IE.
