Please Help Me Out... I Got Major "Internet Explorer" Problems

I Got This Problem Around 5 Days Ago. When I Open The Computer Everytnigs Seems Arlight, But When I Click At The "Interne Explorer" Or The "My Computer" Icon, It Takes Approx 20 Seconds Before The Programs Loads. The Others Programs Works Fine When I Start Them, Its Only Explorer & My Documents That Messes When I Want To Start Them. I Have Reinstalled The Comptuter But The Same Problem Stayed.

Bit of a strange one.
At some point today my pc has gone pear shaped. When ever a new page has to open it will not load it, it just stays there not giving any errors or anything. On some pages when you click on a link it opens up a new page automatically but in this case nothing happens, as stated above.
It's never happened before. Any ideas as I don't want to reinstall XP Pro again.
I just upgraded to xp home and noticed that every time I connect to the internet it takes about 20 seconds before my browser loads (internet explorer). Does anyone know how to make it load instantly?


NTFS Stoner
well for the my documents, i would say if its got a lot of files in there, that's gunna cause a slow down. try to put them in folders to shorten scan times.
And IE, all i can think of is to empty temp net files.

Q. When I start Internet Explorer, every time it takes about 20 seconds to open while the bottom left of the window says "Detecting proxy settings." How can I fix this?

A. Before you change anything, you will want to find out whether your Internet access requires that you use a proxy. If you are connecting to the Internet at home, chances are you don't use one. If you're connecting to the Internet at the office, there is a better chance you are using a proxy.

A proxy server is a computer on your local network that connects to the Internet on your behalf. You make a request to go to a Web page to the proxy, rather than directly to the Net. This is used to protect the security of your internal network. Many offices use proxy servers to control what Web sites are accessible to the users of the network and to log Web activity of individuals on the network.

To turn off the proxy setting, click on Tools, then Internet Options. Go to the Connections tab and the select the LAN Settings button. Uncheck the box next to "Automatically detect settings." This will disable the automatic discovery of any proxy servers. If your network relies on a proxy server to access the Internet, you will know soon enough after modifying this. Reverse the above instructions to reset.
