Hi, I am running IE6 on Win98. After I browse a few pages, it quits loading pages. Links stop working, and I only get the "done" indicator in the status bar. Have to hit Refresh a couple times, then wait sometimes a couple mins. Tried deleting temp internet files, all offline content, ran the Repair IE function in control panel, and Norton System Works doesn't find anything. Driving me nuts.

Hints(?)- problem may have started after I did my taxes on TurboTax for the Web, also, my (this is weird) browser freezes any time I go to the microsoft web site.

Help?

This happens to me as well - I bet you're on a slow dial-up connection - because that's what I put it down to

I clean out everything regularly and it makes no dirrerence - I'm afraid you just have to live with it or get broadband - unfortunately for me that option is not available.

If you post your startup list we may be able to spot something

Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

Please go here and download startuplist 1.51 :-

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

Download to any folder or your desktop
Unzip the zipfile
Double click the exe file
go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

By the way, your statement about a slow connect speed may be it. Tonight, for the first time in a while, I am connected fairly fast and it's better. I have a crummy dialup service, you get what you pay for.

Anyway, Here it is.

Hi JimmyP

I see no problems in your startup - but you do have far too many programs running at startup - this is bound to put a strain on your system resources

If it doesn't need to load at startup - stop it

http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm
http://www.subdimension.com/userpages/scitech/sbccsi/startups.htm
http://www.answersthatwork.com/Tasklist_pages/tasklist_o.htm

Use the links above to help you decide what you can untick at startup

Now go to start click "run" and type in msconfig click startup tab - and start unticking

reboot when finished and these programs will no longer run at startup - you can still start them manualy - or go back and retick them if you decide you want them back on

You do have some spyware:

TimeSink Ad Client = "C:\Program Files\TimeSink\AdGateway\TSADBOT.EXE"

After disabling everything unneccessary in Msconfig (including this one, of course) do this:

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

After installing, press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, go to Settings > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

Thanks loads for your help! I sure cleaned up a lot of unnecessary business. I also believe my crummy dial-up service is to blame too. You folks sure know your stuff.
