hello, I'm new here however I come here a lot and use a lot of your advice. My Internet Explorer runs very slow most of the time...as a matter of fact it too about 2 minutes to load your site. I have searched through the forums and followed a few of your suggestions to others. I ran TFC, Erunt, mbam and atf. I have also ran the 'clean registries' in my Norton 360. I also re-install IE 8 and I still am having this problem. Please help. Thanks so much. :)

95% of all Internet Explorer problems are caused by having thousands (slight exaggeration :)) of toolbars hanging around on the screen.
Apart from being useless pieces of junk that may add nothing to the internet experience apart from hanging around taking up the top third of the screen, they usually interfere with Internet Explorer.

Best thing to do is go into Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. Remove all the toolbars and you will probably (though not guaranteed) find this solves the problem with Internet Explorer.

I suggested, you go to Safe Mode with Networking not pure Safe Mode.
Internet doesn't work in pure Safe Mode.

Thanks for your responses.

I installed Firefox and I hate to report but it was worse. The pages took as long as IE to load and if there were pics it took forever. It also lost connection as well.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)
