Really slow Internet Explorer.

  r0zvad 22:48 26 Oct 2003

For some time now i have been having the same problems as someone in this month's issue of Pc Advisor. The problem is with Internet Explorer. On big websites or forums for example it's just really slow when scrolling or clicking in links. I have got Spybot Search & Destroy and it hasn't found any BHO's. I'm running IE6.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the responses!

I tried the repair IE method but unfortunately it didn't work, although it does seem slightly better.

I would appreciate any more help, thanks.

"Go" buttun. Bring it back. I had the same problem.

I don't quite understand what you mean by that WebGuy. My "Go" button is present in my browser.

Also, when i'm typing in IE it sort of lags, like when i type a letter it is delayed. This is probably associated with my browser troubles :(

Cheers for the replies!

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought many users do not have a "Go" button (because you can just press "Enter" and there you go...) When you downloading pages IE inspecting all items (and "Go" button) I resolved my problem. I don't know about yours... Or I didn't have a problem like your...

The software said "requires Internet Explorer 5.5 or better" - so I installed Mozilla.

Is Tiscali your ISP?

At present it provides some really disappointing connections speeds; normally it's 49.2kbps but today and in recent days it's been down to 33.6kbps.

My other ISP, Pipex, delivers 50.7kbps consistently.
