Since down loading SP1 I have had to perform 2 system restores to get IE to connect. Explorer hangs and takes ages to connect. AV updates etc have been fine. I have tried both Lan and wireless both are affected.
I have had the same problem since I got my new PC a few months ago, the programme hangs and takes 45seconds to open and a further 15seconds to open my home page,I have done all the suggestions from this site but still nothing speeds it up, I don't bother using IE7 now I use Avant instead, this opens immediately and I have no problems.
