Windows 7: Java Add-on slows down IE8

Java Add-on slows down IE8

I've discovered that disabling the "Java Plug-In 2 SSV Helper" Add-on makes my home page load in 1 second instead of 8. The CPU and memory usage are both considerably lower as well.

Might be worth a look to see if you have it.

I was just going to post about this and did a search. Your absolutely correct! I disabled the plugin and tabs open in IE almost instantly now. Big performance boost.

Apparently from what I've been researching the addin isnt needed for IE7 or 8. See this page and scroll down to VanguardLH's post.

That's interesting since the latest x64 version of java apparently lacks that altogether. When looking in the IE 8 tools>manage addons nothing by SUN is seen.

Mine was listed under addons that run without permission. You can also check to see if you have jp2svv.dll in your java bin folder.

old trick for years that fixes this but to fix slightly diff procedure in IE8.

tools -> manage addons then disable java ssv helper. It isnt needed for java applets to run and is a well known cause of IE lag.

Just found it on the latest 64bit install seen on the new drive. The 32bit IE 8 seems to be a bit more responsive with that disabled while not necessarily seeing any tremendous speed boost.

I should simply right click on it and say bye bye since this apparently is a memory grabber to see IE 8 bog down.

What should I do if I get a Java tm Plug-in 2 ssv Helper jp2ssv.dll error? Sure, disabling this add-on wonít generate that error again, but what if I want this add-on to be enabled without getting that error message? As far as I found out about this Java tm Plug-in 2 ssv Helper jp2ssv.dll error the cause might be a possible malware, so I scanned my PC (Vista + IE10) using Avast AV and it didnít detect anythingÖany idea how to solve this problem? (I suspect it's my IE 10 as I donít remember having this in with IE9).
