Just formatted my laptop to use for work. Downloaded all the latest drivers and installed all the windows updates. Everything is great except browsing-Both IE and Firefox have trouble loading pages (they keep redrawing, or skip images, or sometimes do nothing unless you repeatedly request the page.) Anyways, this is a clean installation of XP Pro SP2. All updates and the installation of anti-virus software were done offline so there's no chance of virus/spyware infiltration there.
Here's what I've done to troubleshoot:
- Different browsers - same thing
- Network - not cable or switch, all other computers are fine
- Wired and wireless - same thing
- resetting winsock
- Tried older network drivers
