How do I know what IE Plug-ins to enable/disable?

Hi,

My IE has been really alow lately. I cleaned out my temp files, ran a couple spyware/malware programs but it still seems a little sluggish. Somebody had mentioned to me to disable plug-ins that you dont need, but I am not sure which ones are necessary/unnecessary. Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Thanks

Well that is down to the individual.

Ask yourself what plugins do you use?

Could you post a screenshot of your plugins?

Hi Harry,

I took a deeper look into the plug-ins and disabled the ones I think I dont use. I also ran a program that someone mentioned called CCleaner. Between the plug-ins disabled and the CCleaner program, I have definitely noticed improvement. I appreciate you taking the time to respond to my post. Have a great weekend!

Thanks
