I'm running Windows XP Pro and connect to the Internet via DSL. Lately when I first click on my IE icon it is taking much longer to open than previously (20+ seconds or so).
When following links on pages, etc. the page load time seems just fine - it's only when I go on that first time.
I've created a shortcut that opens a blank page to no avail, cleaned out temp internet files, ran my SpySweeper and AdAware for tracking cookies, but nothing helps.
Can anyone offer any additional suggestions out there?
