Speeding up IE 8

I finally got tired of the “Connecting…” message and associated delay when starting Internet Explorer 8, and did some searching. This worked for me; your mileage may vary. No warranties.

Tools/Manage Add-Ons
Toolbars and Extensions

Select Java™ Plug-In 2 SSV Helper

Tools/Internet Options
General

OK
