Just curious if someone could help me with this. I recently reset my machine back to its' factory settings, and I'm having a problem with IE that I had before the reset as well. Specifically, it freezes for 5-10 seconds while it loads certain websites ... such as futureshop.ca and even geekstogo.com - seems like it is loading something, but freezes during this time. Is there something that these and other sites use that cause IE to freeze (or take so long to load)?

Not that concerned about it, just annoying ... once the site finally loads up, I have no problem accessing other pages of the site (no load time).

Windows XP Home, IE 8 ...

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed light on this!

No idea - but then I hardly use IE at all. I'm a full-time Firefox user unless I need microsoft update site. Firefox beats IE by a country-mile.

Sounds like this might be an easy fix. Try going into Tools>Manage Add-Ons, and disabling all toolbars and add--ons. (If you don't think you can live without some, try and disable all non-essential) Does this fix anything?

Cheers,
