Hi, I'm here again with my compurt woes.
On my sons computer, when I try to access the internet using the explorer icon, it take ages before the sceen loads.

The timer comes on for a couple of seconds, then you can use the PC as normal. Then after about 2 mins the page load, (default google)

Any Ideas anyone?

Many thanks

All depends on the operating syste and IE version. Some things to try:

click here
Repair IE

Delete all temp files etc: click here is a good option.

Hi tried a few things. When i try the repair i can search for the file and install. When I do this is it keeps comming up with files it can't find. i have the XP CD and I can't find them on that either.
Where am I going wrong

Can you give us the names of the missing files please?

Hi Vog Yes I will, just run me through this again.

I search for the ie.inf file on my C drive.
When it finds this I right click and install.

It starts the install then keep asking for files it can't find. There are quite a few.

So I try to find then on the CD (nothing doing there.

I must be doing something wrong

Tell us a couple of the missing files - it might give a clue to the problem.

One is iexplore.exe ???

That file is the main Internet Explorer executable.

Try a reinstall click here (this is the full version, not just a Service Pack.)

Hi Vog, Tried the new install, everything went fine, installed the download etc.

Still the same problem though.

Explorer loads. but it just takes ages (couple of mins)

Is it possible to uninstall explorer?
