I run XP Home SP2 on a Pentium 3.2 GHz machine with 1GB RAM.
I upgraded to IE7 about 2 weeks ago. I like the interface and the tabbed browsing, but at times the anti-phishing screening takes an age.
I read on this forum about a Microsoft patch for this problem, which I duly downloaded. It has made some difference, but not much. I still find myself periodically waiting for a very long time for a web page to appear.
Does anyone have any other thoughts on a solution to this problem, please?
Hi,You dont run Advanced Windows Care by any chance,I always have problems with DNS Cache after running this program,Result is it is slow to open web pages,May not be your problem, But if you go into Control Panel, Network Connections,And right click,Local area connections, And press repair,You get warning about DNS Cache,If that is clear,Some folk have had trouble with Add-Ons,Now the problem is,I cant remember if they deleted all add-ons or if it was only one they deleted,Worth having a look,And lastly,Click the Privacy button on the status bar,And make sure that there is nothing blocked that should not be blocked,If none of those I can only think it is either a cookie problem or Firewall problem,
I am not sure that it is actually worth keeping the anti-phishing screen on if it causes significant delays.
The results of a phishing attack can be disasterous if you fall for the scam BUT just because you have an anti-phishing screen are you really going to assume that nothing will get past it and cough up your details to any email requesting them? I think not.
Turn it off and be as vigilant as you were before the screening was incoroprated in IE7.
