hi people ...
hope someone can help with this ..
i have started to have problems accessing the address bar in IE ( the drop down menu with all the used addresses in )when i click to drop it down ,the busy curser comes up and it takes about a minute for the list to appear .
this has only started recently, since i tried to access a ftp link ,is this possibly the reason ?
and is there a way to sort this out ....daxian .

daxian, have you tried clearing all those used addresses from the address bar?

control panel\internet options\general\clear history
