Internet explorer 8 slow to open.

When I open IE8 it take about 20-30 seconds even longer. It's so slow compared with IE7. Is this a common problem or is it just mine? Is there a fix please?

What version of Windows are you running, and was your computer originally supplied with that version, or have you upgraded?

I'm window xp, I was on IE7 and I may have been on IE6 before that but not sure.

In which case I assume that your computer is quite old. It's possible, therefore, that IE8 is simply placing more demands on it than IE7 did previously. Hence the slowness.

Check Task Manager to see what processes are running.
