Hey folks, I've been an avid lurker of this message board for awhile and now I have a need for some help. I am running Windows XP Pro and IE 6. For some strange reason, IE will take about 2 minutes to open up to a webpage. Afterwards I can surf the net without any lag or problems (I have cable modem) However, whenever I close IE and then re-open it, or open it for the first time, it takes forever to load. I am also running Windows Pro 2000 and Windows 98 on individual machines without any problems. My machine is an HP Pavillion with 900MHZ Pentium Processor and 256MB of ram. The only thing I could come up with is that I haven't defragged my drives for quite awhile. The other programs on this PC run fine. Email works without a problem. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
