Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474) Slowing down Internet Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded Genuine Advantage successfully from Windows Update.  Ever since, although I get no error messages, my pages when I surf the internet will not load as quickly as they were.  How could this possibly be related?  What can I do about it?

  • Good Morning HUllrich,

    Thank you for visiting our forum. Curious do you have Windows Defender installed? If not please install it then update it as well. Next do you have any other anti-malware programs installed? If so please update all the signature files for the programs and scan your computer for any potential virsus. Next I recommend defragging your computer. Let us know what the results are.

    Thank you,
