    When I log onto a website that require a name and password, such as a bank or credit card company, the page loads very slowly. Should I change my security and/privacy settings? If so, how? Will this speed things up?

    Does this have anything to do with the yellow lock icon that appears at the bottom of the screen?

    Thanks, Pat

    Make sure these sites have a secure padlock and that their URL starts with HTTPS and not just HTTP.

    Are you using 56K dial-up or high-speed cable/DSL? There are some registry tweaks that will help a webpage load quicker, but since you're a beginner, I won't volunteer that information.

    I not sure if I follow. Sites that don't require me to log in open almost immediately. Sites that do require me to sign in take forever to open after I sign in.

    Is there a security or privacy setting that I should change on my PC to get the page to open?

    Thanks.
