Optimize your computer ..... series contd.


Make Internet Explorer run faster

The Web is a sparkling achievement of modern society. It's everywhere—from the home to the classroom. We use it to communicate, to work, to play—even to waste time when there's nothing else to do.
Yet there's nothing more frustrating than having this technical marvel at our fingertips 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, only to watch our computers access the Internet at a crawling pace. Thankfully, Microsoft Internet Explorer provides some useful options for quicker Web surfing. Let's look at these options now.
Reduce the size of your Web page history
Internet Explorer stores visited Web pages to your computer, organizing them within a page history by day. While it's useful to keep a couple days of Web history within your computer, there's no need to store more than a week's worth. Any more than that and you're collecting Web pages that will slow down your computer's performance.

To reduce your Web page history:

1.       In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2.       In the Internet Options dialog box, in the History section, find the Days to keep pages in history: box. Type "1" in this box, as pictured in the image below. ClickOK.

Reduce the number of days to keep pages in history.
Don't save encrypted Web pages
Encrypted Web pages ask for usernames and passwords. These pages scramble information to prevent the reading of this sensitive information. You can define Internet Explorer to not save these types of pages. You'll free up space by saving fewer files to your computer, as well as keeping secure information off your computer.

To not save encrypted Web pages:

1.       In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2.       In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
3.       In the Settings section, scroll down to the Security section. Check the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" option.
4.       Now, Click on Restore Defaults or Restore Advanced Settings and then Click OK.
Set up Internet Explorer so that you do not save encrypted Web pages.

Delete Browsing History
Check the options to Delete Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, History, Form Data, Password and InPrivate Filtering Data to browse safely and securely on the internet.
·         To Delete Browsing History on Closing Internet Explorer.
Under the General Tab, Browsing History Area, Check the box for “Delete Browsing History On Exit correct the box according to the customer requirements.
