    Recently Internet Explorer has bogged down on me. Pages will load but not on the first try. I frequently have to use the back button then try again. Some pages load on first try but very slowly.

    The most recent change is that I added the SETI software and wondered if this is eating up resources or affecting the browser in some way.

    I have Norton Internet Security and use Adaware on a regular basis.

    I know very little about security and firewall configuration.

    In IE Options>Connections>LAN settings, I have Automatically Detect settings checked.

    In the Advanced Tab, I have SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, and TLS 1.0 all checked.

    In Tools>Pop Up Blocker, I turned off the pop-up blocker, but this was just done and hasn't been tested long enough to know how much it will help.

    I clear Cookies and Temp Internet Files regularly.

    This problem doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes pages load at normal speed (for my connection).

    I'm connected wirelessly using a Sony Viao laptop with a 1.73GHz processor.

    I've had this problem before on a desktop computer with a much faster processor. However, I don't remember what was done to correct the problem.

    Please advise.

    I'll be glad to submit any reports, logs, etc. required.

    I have Sandra Lite 2007 but have never used it.
