I realise that much has been discussed within this forum previously about slow browsing problems with IE. And I have tried all the various stated fixes without any change. At one stage I almost wished I had Norton Firewall installed as this seemed to be causing most of the problems.
My installation is only 2 weeks old, with all applicable updates installed, and the browser was working just fine up until late last week when at some point I cannot nail down to a specific event, such as loading software, it all went pear shaped.
My home network consists of 2 computers, each with a wireless network card communicating with a D-Link DSL-G406T (ADSL Modem/Router/Wirless) hooked up to my phone line.
The other computer which has XP Home remaines un-effected and all other aspects of internet comms works fine on the XP Pro machine such as e-mail and file downloads, the fault is isolated to IE. One thing I have just noticed is that if I click on a link contained within an e-mail the first page opens at normal speed and it is only any further link I click on that it slows right down again.
I have run the following software in an effort to resolve this
Ad Aware SE Plus
XP Repair Pro 2006
And I have also done the following
Re Installed the video drivers
Repair Installation of Office 2003
My next step is to try a repair installation of XP Pro.
Any thoughts most appreciated.
