Windows 7: IE 11 freezes until graphics are displayed - sometimes

IE 11 freezes until graphics are displayed - sometimes

Hi guys. Running 1109600 in Windows 7 Ult 64-bit. Win is up to date; just did an update two days ago. I also updated Adobe Flash yesterday, but the problem I have been having for some time has not gone away. I have done a google search, and found people with freezing browsers, but nothing like what I am having.

Basically, many pages I browse to in IE freeze until certain graphics are displayed. Usually, we are talking ads and ad banners - but not always. The page fully loads in a split second, and then completely freezes, until the graphic becomes visible. I actually see the space where the graphic is about to be displayed - it just appears as empty space. During the freeze, I can not scroll, I can not l-click nor r-click anywhere on the page, but I can close the browser (or the tab), and I can minimize it. Once the graphic appears, it's all fine. The freeze is usually anywhere from 5 sec to 8 sec., and as I said, it's usually ads and banners. I am not trying to get rid of the ads nor stop them from loading; generally, they are small and out of the way and I don't mind them. I am just want them to load with the rest of the page. I don't see the same behavior in FFox. Here is an ex. of what I am talking about:

See how about half the page loads in literally 1 sec, and the rest takes about an additional 5 sec? This is what happens to me quite often, but usually it's one small ad at the top or side, as opposed to half the page.

There wasn't much I could think to do... Spybot and Malewarebytes found nothing, and an sfc/ scannow found nothing. If I go to Manage Add Ons, the only thing enabled is Shockwave Flash Object. nothing is enabled in Accelerators nor Tracking Protection.

Was hoping someone could tell me where to look next.

Thanks in advance.

See if the same issue occurs in Safe Mode with Networking

Safe Mode

If NOT, try a clean start to see if there is a conflict

An add-on could also be the cause

Internet Explorer - Enable or Disable Toolbars and Extensions Add-ons

Hi guys, thanks for the replies.

ThrashZone > thanks for the link, but hat has nothing to do with my issue.

This issue does not appear in safe mode.

So, I think I am on to something here. If I go to add-ons, and disable shockwave flash object, I have no issues with pages and ads and ad banners loading. Everything loads in a split sec.

However, when I go to youtube, I get this message:

You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video.
Download it from Adobe.

That just sits at the top of the main page, which is kinda weird, because I am not loading and vids at that point. All vids in youtube, and vimeo play just fine. Vids I have on my personal site do not, however. Tho, I may have an old version of, well.. something. :/

Ideas here? Should I leave the shockwave flash object disabled?

Thanks again.

Tried uninstalling Java.

Same thing. Is there really no way to use IE11 without having to keep turning flash on and off?

I have no problems with Flash and IE11 (or IE10 for that matter). The Fedex website that you showed in your video loads just fine. The images that you show loading last also load last for me; but it all happens pretty quick.

What antivirus app are you using?

Also, what happens if you...
...wait for the Fedex website to load
...open a new tab
...load that same Fedex website into the new tab.

Flash should already be loaded into RAM by the first tab. I was wondering if the freeze was due to Flash loading slowly or some antivirus app watching the Flash exe too closely - thus pausing Flash a bit each time that Flash loads.

I dont use an AV app. As for the FedEx page - or any other that takes time to load...opening that same page in a new tab results in the page loading immediately with no stutter.

I tried the speedtest and this is what I have:

Any other ideas? Thanks.
