Today I found on this site today that a member had a problem just like mine in 2005, with IE's address bar not working properly. I am having the same problem, and have had since Nov. Every "tech support" paid service I have tried can't solve my problem. I am now also having a problem with Windows Explorer too.
IE takes up to 2 minutes to find and load a page if I only type the www.~~.com in the address bar, but if I type the entire address, including the http://www.~~.com then IE brings the page up immediately.
Windows Explorer takes about 20-60 seconds to load a list of my drives and files anytime I click the dropdown arrow to navigate to a different area (like to save a file to desktop instead of in my docs.)
Can anyone help? Please...
