    we had this issue slowing down our IE. It could be a recent adobe flash update, if you log in with admin rights, add user write permissions to these folders and see if that cures it. Give full permissions for everyone to the following 2 folders:

    C:\programdata\adobe
    C:\ Windows\system32\macromed\

    Yes I had the exact same issue when running IE9 with with a version of Flash 11.6 - I followed the advice posted by dksniper above and it sorted out the speed of pages loading.

    When I logged in with an account that had admin rights, the speed was fine, so it was definitely the access rights that fixed it.

    A few months ago we noticed a problem with slow loading of pages. we disabled Protected Mode in Internet Explorer, that seemed to speed it up.

    Create batch file with following script

    if exist c:\macromed.fix goto end

    cacls c:\windows\system32\macromed /e /g everyone:f
    cacls c:\programdata\adobe /e /g everyone:f
    echo done > c:\macromed.fix

    :end


    Then GPO – “Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Scripts/Startup/*Point to .bat file*
    Cheers Dave
