I have a friend whose quiet new(5 months) and internet explorer has become very slow to open a page (like 20 seconds). What can be done to make it run faster. I know over the time using the internet this is very usual so what to do?. thanks.

Does your friend delete all their temporary internet files before logging off? This also applies to any coockies downloaded to. A bit more information might help - as it maybe related to something else if your friend tries that and it doesn't resolve the problem.

I think that's a normal problem when people use the internet.But i don't know exactly what people do to keep the p.c. running smoothly.

If on IE7 get him to disable his add-ons and see if it runs okay then.if so enable his add-ons one at a time till he finds the culprit.Or tools Internet Options.Advanced.Press restore advanced settings.Or Advanced.Reset.He will loose all his add-ons but can turn them back on again.Download and Run C Cleaner.What Anti-virus and security programs does he have running.If you have done all that and find no difference,Download Winaso Optimizer free.This only repairs 10 items at a time but you can run it as often as you like.It does an automatic update and has a registry defrag on here.

Hi,Another one I picked up from *raven* .click here I gave it a try at the weekend and I am opening my pages twice as quick as normal.So worth a try.Speed test to make sure he is getting the correct speed from his here .Just click on the nearest pyramid when they open.Now I presume he has run all his security programs and found nothing.
