Hmmm, how did you create the desktop shortcut? Right click, create shortcut in IE folder, then drag shortcut to desktop? Right click, Copy, in IE folder, then paste to desktop? If you right click the shortcut, Properties, what is the path?

Yes, sort of. Everything except after dragging to desktop I copied it "here". (The desktop.) The option "copy in IE folder" was not there. I used a non-windows explorer file manager to create the shortcut as above I even did the the steps in windows explorer which when I right clicked on IE.exe and selected create shortcut (in IE folder) a window popped up informing me that Windows couldn't create a shortcut here, would I like to place it on the desktop? I said yes. still loaded pages slow.

Here's the path in properties: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

I was re-reading my posts and in the one where I tried placing a shortcut in various places, and I said a shortcut created in IE folder worked great....well, that seems to be wrong. Clicking on that shortcut will load pages slowly also. Apparently, I got a wire crossed after trying so many different shortcuts. Sorry. Hope I'm not muddying the waters here.

Interesting post.
I usually create shortcuts by right click > Send to > Desktop (create shortcut). But saying yes to placing shortcut on desktop doesn't sound wrong.
A tiny idea I got and why I am posting is: In this scenario I'd next consult the Windows event log (right click Computer > manage) right after you open a slow instance of IE to see for any errors or warnings relating to IE occur.

Experimenting with settings in the shortcut itself and IE add-ons might also be a way to go.

Keep us posted.

Can we confirm no matter how you launch IE, x86 or x64, it is slow? And that launching from the exe in the IE folders are not working correctly? I am somewhat confused now. A Guy

Sorry for the confusion. Launching IE from any shortcut, i.e. start menu, desktop, quick launch or within the IE folder, will cause slow loading. Launching the exe in the x86 or x64 folders IE loads pages as it should...fast.

Jacee: I'm using Comodo firewall and Avast anti-virus. Both are configured to allow IE.

LazyLizard: No postings of errors for IE were seen in event log.
