IE takes ages to load up

  timone 16:23 23 Jan 2005

I was wondering whether anybody could help me out, ive brought a laptop at the end of september, and everything has been running fine, until recently i was infected with adware. This was detected and deleted by bt anti-spy. But ever since it was deleted the internet explorer browser takes an age to load up each time i click it. it makes clicking on links a nightmare when surfing the net. I tried to perform a system restore, but this only caused problems. And then downloaded the microsoft updates, but this stopped my whole system from loading up. Eventually i was able to restore the system back to where IE just is really really slow.

Has anbody got any advise, or is my only option to buy a reload cd for my system?

i would not rely on bt system to sort your poss adware probs, what anti spyware do you have yourself? what is your os and type of connection?
