    Vista, IE 7, very slow loading except as Admin

    Hi,

    Any help would be much appreciated! I have a new computer that came with
    Vista Home Premium. I have slowly been adding peripherals and applications.
    I have noticed successively decreasing performance of IE - not everything,
    just IE. The latest is it takes 20 sec to load IE w/ Google as the one and
    only home page. Now, the kicker is that if I run IE using the "Run as
    Adminstrator" option, it takes 2 seconds. I have tried everything suggested
    in the Knowledge Base to no avail. Even with only the basic MS services
    running and network connectivity, executing IE takes 20 sec. This is true
    for all users (I have User Account Controls activated), regardless of the
    boot configuration.

    I'd rather nip this is the bud before it gets much worse. Any ideas out
    there?

    Hello,

    maybe it's a stupid thought, but what if you run IE without add-ons?
    [Windows-key + R] -> iexplore -extoff -> Enter

    Greetings,

    Thanks for responding, but no. That was one of the first things I tried.

    Turns out the problem is Protected Mode. When I disable it, everything is
    nice and fast. So, I've learned a bit about when protected mode is on/off,
    but not a lot about what it "protects" me from except getting my pages in a
    timely fashion. Anyone want to clue me in?

    My guess would be then that Admin automatically gets permissions for all
    files while Users need to run through the access control lists to check
    permissions. Do you see any disk activity while it is "Deliberating", it
    may only be brief flashes of the drive light. This may be something with
    the file system or perhaps it's an IE thing and to do with things as
    disparate as certificates etc.

    Did you try clearing the cache? Maybe "admin" is using a different
    cache that isn't as blighted.

    IE7's default of 50M isn't as gross as older IE's "X% of your HD
    belong to us", and NTFS is more efficient for dits containing large
    numbers of items than FATxx., but it's still a possible factor.
