This very same problem has recently started to occur whenever I open IE 7. In addition I have started to get frequent Scrip Error Messages (whatever they are) and I often run Ccleaner.

Sorry I cant help with a solution to this problem but I thought you might like to know that you are not alone.

Probably nothing to do with this,but you never here Maybe try Tools.Internet options.advanced and restore advanced settings.Or disable all of your add-ons and see if it runs any quicker.What Security programs are you using including Firewall.

A couple of thoughts really, rather than answers:

If IE is set to open with an Ms site, there can be some delay, depending on what time of day it is in the US ... heavy internet traffic, that kind of thing. It might be an idea to set the home page to blank and see if that makes any difference.

The script error messages can be caused by not having the appropriate "disable" boxes ticked in IE> Tools> Internet Options> Advanced> and scroll down.

If your using IE7,try turining off the phishing filter that slows things down,I turned mine off to see and it did make a difference on opening up web pages etc.Have a go you can always turn it back on.To do so tools internet options advanced tab then scroll down to the phishing and select disable apply ok.good luck.daiol.

i have yahoo as my homepage and up until about a week ago it was loading slowly,all other pages opened daiol says turning off the phishing filter also helped me.

To everyone who advised me ,I switched off the phishing filter and its back to normal,Thanks for the advice. I will reverse it in a couple of weeks and see if there is any difference

I`m not entirely sure about this but the slowing-down effect of IE 7`s phishing filter was supposed to have been corrected by an Ms update some considerable time ago.

I can`t honestly say I notice any slowing while using it but then I`m not much into internet shopping sites where it may have more work to do, I think.
