Issue



It was noticed that after importing an Internet Explorer (IE) 6 layer onto a machine running IE8, the IE6 layer took about 20 seconds to load.


Environment



Windows XP SP3 running IE8 on the base.  SWV 6.1.5114 with IE6 layer created by LDT.


Cause



The Sun Microsystems SSVHelper Class (in my machines case - “Java™ Plug-In 2 SSV Helper”) in IE8 was enabled.


Solution



Disabling the Sun Microsystems SSVHelper Class in IE8 via its Manage Add-ons feature, allowed the IE6 layer to load in a respectable time.
