Windows 7: Internet Explorer 10 running very slow

Internet Explorer 10 running very slow

My IE10 searches are is running so slow as to be almost unbearable. I having starting using Chrome for searches instead since that is running normally. I am using the Google Toolbar to initiate searches on IE10 as I have been forever with no problems. Not aware of any issue that may have caused this slow down to start. Did a virus and maleware scan and only have Google, shockwave, adobe PDF helper, Microsoft Silverlight, Skype and Java SSV Helper add-ons enabled. Every so often IE10 will report that a long running script is executing. Clicking on links and shortcuts works perfectly fine and quickly. It is only searches that are hanging up IE10 a long time before results are posted.

Try starting IE without any add-ons:
Internet Explorer No Add-ons Shortcut - Create

Perhaps the Google toolbar has changed.

edit: doh - Jacee posted while I was locating that tutorial. You can try the no add-on thing whenever.

Also verify your current version installed,
There was a new version released 11-13-13 "+ -" so if that's about the same time when search slowed down it might just be the new versions security updates dislike Google toolbar and you might just need to Uninstall and re-install the toolbar,
