Does IE seem to move quicker once it is opened ?

You can try a repair of IE See Here


Aside from IE opening slowly the machine still seems to be running slow ?

After the initial startup (2+ min.), IE starts faster. If I start a second instance of IE, it starts right up. The other apps are faster, too--maybe not as fast as I'd like, but workable.

The IE repair process sounds kind of scary--do you recommend doing that?

Thanks,
Carol

Hmmm hold off on the IE repair for now, If its running fine after it has been running I don't think repairing will do much but lt me check into it
