Slow Internet Explorer startup
the first Internet Explorer (V.8) startup on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Session Host is very slow for some users. "First startup" means: the users logon process is finished, he doubleclicks the IE icon and it lasts up to 2 minutes til IE is ready to use. After closing IE and restarting it the startup is fast as usual.
I've used Sysinternals procmon and got thousands of these read/write/query operations while IE startup.
iexplore.exe | WriteFile | C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SRTSP\SrtETmp\5B2905FB.TMP | SUCCESS
iexplore.exe |QueryStandardInformationFile | C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SRTSP\SrtETmp\5B2905FB.TMP | SUCCESS | AllocationSize: 983.040, EndOfFile: 32.767, NumberOfLinks: 1, DeletePending: False, Directory: False
I assume there is a dependency between Internet Explorer and SEP (v. 11.0.6200.754, Auto-Protect active).
So the question is why does IE query the SEP folder "C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SRTSP\SrtETmp" that often?!
""" Your hints are really appreciated.
