    I have a problem guys. i wasn't sure to make a new thread or use that IE one but anyway my problem is that IE is loading pages slow. and i have broadband and it shouldn't. and i know its not my internets fault b/c i used Realone and i browsed the internet using that and it went fast...i was confused b/c realone uses IE built in right? all my settings for IE are default ones so whats wrong?

    Try reloading IE, Have you updated all patches? Sometimes the active x control plays goofy with Real player

    Use Mozilla, or SLimbrowser lite version

    When did you start noticing the problem? Do you remember installing anything prior to the slowdown occurring? If it was recently and you have an available restore point, then you might try a System Restore.

    Did you apply any of the old tweaks yet!
    Speed up web Browsing

    ""When you browse a network machine from a Windows 2000 or XP system, extra time is taken to determine if any scheduled tasks or printers are enabled on the destination computer.

    Open your registry and find the key below: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/ CurrentVersion/Explorer/Remote Computer/NameSpace"

    To disable checking for scheduled tasks delete the

    {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} sub-key.

    To disable checking for printers delete the

    {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} sub-key.

    The change should take effect immediately. ""

    Lots of the usual tweaks, you remember like turning off about half of the XP visual performance options!!

    For temporary internet files use 7mb and then delete the files.
