Internet Explorer 8 loading problems

  loopyloo 16:50 29 Jul 2010

I am running the above when I first try to open explorer 8 it's taking about a minute for the page to load. After that it is fine. It seems to be that first page it takes so long. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you got the Google Toolbar loaded? If so try disabling it from Internet Explorer using the "X" to the left of the word Google and see if this cures the problem. You can get the Google Toolbar back again by Right Clicking a blank spot on the Internet Explorer toolbar and selecting "Google Toolbar".

I have tried this but makes no difference. I have googled this problem and it seems quite common but I can't find a solution. I thought someone on this site might have a solution.

Try,Tools.Internet Options.Reset.
That resets I/Explorer to its original state.
Make sure Compatibility view is ticked.
Maybe try this add-Blocker.

Once you have run Reset you will need to enable some of your add-ons again.
And do the same with Spywareblaster if you have that.
