explorer drop down bar misbehaving????????

When I click on the internet explorer dropdown bar it takes about 5 minutes for the webpage history to appear -
The dropdown bar then functions perfectly well with the history appearing instantly at the click of a button for the rest of my surfing session.

If I close down and then reopen internet explorer I'm waiting for 5minutes again for the dropdown bar history to appear. This is hardly a catastrophic problem, just very annoying.
I'm on winxp IE6 all fully updated with uptodate norton antivirus/systemworks and BPS spyware remover. Any ideas would be appreciated?

Try a 'repair' of IE. For more info on how to do this (if you need it) - click here

Clear your History at Tools -> Internet Options. Press the Clear History button. Also delete your Internet Temp files while your at it. Close IE, then re-open & see if this problem recurs.

Please let us know what worked - the IE repair, deleting your History or both?
