Very slow typing speed on Internet Explorer
« on: Wednesday May 12, 2010, 09:16:52 AM »
Not really sure what version I'm using, but it's definitely the latest. When i access the main page, the placements of the fonts get a bit out of place. And when I type it takes a few seconds for the word to show up. Firefox works just fine for me. Please alert me if this is just a bug with my version or if its a universal issue.

P.S, Search does not work well for me, so I could not search to see if there were similiar topics

Nope, no such issue reported before, which is why search couldn't find it. And I'm honestly not sure what you mean. Which pages are being slow and how fast a CPU do you have? If it's a laptop is it then plugged into a power outlet while browsing or is it running on batteries?

I have noticed times when my (or others) computers are chugging along (busy with something), the keyboard response when typing in a text box will be slow.  I can type a full sentence at times, and stop typing, and sit back and watch the words scroll along.

Open up your Task Manager (usually Ctrl-Alt-Del will bring it up) and see if any processes or applications are using up a lot of CPU/RAM

Why you are using IE?, don't you know that IE is the worst browser?
If you DO have fire fox (or any other "good" browser) and you don't have any problems with it, then, Why you don't just use it and forgot about IE.

I don't have any problems with the search bar, are you sure that it don't work for you?, or you are saying that you don't know how to use it?

honestly, I don't understand what is your problem.

Do you have the same problem with any other browser?, other than IE (I know that you already try-ed fire fox). Opera, Avant, google chrome, etc.?

Not sure if this is working,
but, try clearing your browser history.

I've done as everyone told. I'm using IE as its the fastest for me. But for some reason, EVERY single area of RomU seems to type slow for me. I can show you a screenshot of the main page for me.

Edit: Heres a picture of the main page for me

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


This happened whilest typing the edit :

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Also, I'm running a decently fast computer. 4GB Ram, I5 Processor.But the thing is that the speed problem only happens when I'm writing from the quick-reply box. When I'm editing it, no problem.
And another issue arises. It seems when I hit "save" to enter my message, it shows a "?>" message on a blank white screen, then comes back to the topic.

Thank you Seph. And thank you for everyone who tried to help me. Sorry if I'm unaware of the site issues these days. My examinations were going on and I could not go on so often, therefore not being kept up too date.

no, AV programs cannot remove malware. You need dedicated malware removal programs such as malwarebytes antimalware or spybot search and destroy.

Use Chrome then.

But for some reason, IE for me feels much better then the other browsers.... I guess its the interface.

we are giving you the better options, if you don't want to take them then it's your problem... you should go google for the critics about IE, then you maybe realise that is the worst browser ever (and is the most slower!!!!)
