What kind of inernet do you have? Dial up or broadband?

And have you tried loading Firefox to see if it's slow as well?

If you have suspect having a trojan on your computer, that could be a reason for your problem. Try getting help at the Malware Revomal forum: http://www.geekstogo...hp?showforum=37

Firefox is another web browser that is a lot better and safer than Internet Explorer. More info here.
