Disabling the Disable Add-ons Popup in Internet Explorer 9


For some people that have lots of add-ons this may be a handy feature for determining what is slowing Internet Explorer 9’s startup; but, personally I find this popup to be rather annoying, especially since I do not want to disable any of my add-ons.  Fortunately this feature can either be turned off or the delay time can be changed so it will only notify when you when it exceeds a set time.

First off, to disable the popup, click on the little down arrow next to the Ask me later button.  Select the Don’t disable button.  The popup should now disappear, unless you install additional add-ons.


The second option for ridding yourself of the popup, and the one I would probably recommend using, is to change the delay time.  First click the Choose add-ons buttons.  Under the Choose add-ons dialog change the “Tell me when the delay caused by add-ons exceeds [Time].”  Change the time until all the red bars turn to grey
