Windows 7: Win 7/ie/& ssd performance

26 Jul 2011   #1

Win 7/ie/& ssd performance

This is my problem's
1. With windows 7 installed, IE 9 will make my PDF's open in the same tab, therefore makeing adobe to ask if this is "ok". But whin I uninstall ie 8 in the cotrol panel and install ie 9 from a "Download" site ie; "microsoft" this does not happen, why?
2. I have researched for over two(2) week's or more to find the best "Performance" trick's, maintenance changes to "Disk" as well as Software and still my ssd hard drive does not performe as well as my "7200rpm" regular hhd, shown in performanance "5.9" over all "5.5"

So are there any tacker's, I have tryed just about every thing out there! The SSD should perform at lest on the "low"side at "7.1" but so far it has not..

Please I need some advise!!!!

A bit obvious but did you set the BIOS to AHCI? Also as far as I am concerned IE9 is a clinker. I just returned to the speed and smooth performance of IE8. Ahhhh!

Note that if IE9 performs slowly, one of the major differences (other than the rendering engine) is the fact that it uses your GPU for acceleration, and as such a lot of IE problems being slow actually come down to video drivers. There are ways to disable GPU acceleration, and so if IE8 performs faster than IE9 on your machine, it could actually be the GPU/driver rather than IE (they're not all that different internally, at least not to the point one would be tremendously slow versus the other).
