Hello! I wasn't sure whether I should tag onto the end of someone elses woes or start my own. So here we are.

I am running at 2.6 ghz P4 with Windows XP Professional, 1 gb of ram, 160 gb hard drive.

Having trouble where ie6 loads in less than a second on my other comparable machines, but takes about 3-5 seconds on this machine.

In addition, there is a noticeable pause from when I click on page links until I hear the audible feedback and that page starts to come up.

I am using a cable connection and have verified that I get download speeds close to 400kbps consistently.

I am running two other machines and they seem ok.... almost instantaneous browsing etc.

Anyway, I ran spybot and it found a few things like sextracker etc so I had it clean out all those.

I ran hijack and here are the results:

I've been messing with this for a couple weeks and am quite frustrated.

I have tried doing an ie repair and have tried reinstalling ie6.

Any other ideas would be very much appreciated.

Do this in order:

1) Open Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> delete cookies, delete files (select off-line content), clear history. Then click ok and exit Internet Explorer.

2) Read http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html then download and run SpyBot.

3) Re-Post your HiJackThis log.

Hello - thanks for your quick response.

I already ran spybot before using HiJackThis. I cleared out everything spybot found.

I also already had cleared cache, cookies, files etc.

However, I will go back and do it again anyway and will post the info again after I get back from work.

Thanks for your help!

This one can go

O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://207.188.7.150/012acc0774fda6...ip/RdxIE601.cab

I have a couple of questions for you,

Do your other machines run Drive Image 7, Go back and are they on XP?

If the other machines are on XP, do you have system restore running?

Do you have system restore running on this machine.

The reason I ask is that maybe with Drive Image and goback constantly running in the background as well as system restore, then you may be ending up with some resource hogging, lagging or even conflicts, There is no need to run the three back up programs.

Hello - thanks again for such a quick response.

I will remove that entry.

Here is the lowdown on the other machines:

(1) Windows XP Media Center Edition - came on my laptop - has GoBack. Does not currently have Drive Image. System Restore is supposed to be turned off but I;ll check.

(2) Windows XP Home Edition - no GoBack, no Drive Image, has system restore turned on.

(3) the problem machine - has DriveImage installed, has GoBack installed. I am hoping system restore is turned off, it is supposed to be, but I need to check that when I get home. I'll let you know.

Take this as well :

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)

In addition you may want to trim down your startup menu a bit by comparing your startup to this list, then do a disk cleanup and defrag in safe mode and your system should speed up a bit..

Hello!

I never would have expected the resolution that I found.

I started going down the list and doing research on every application I had installed.

And I came across Dragon Naturally Speaking 7.

It installs a hidden file called iexplore.exe.local. It supposedly makes their product work better, but makes IE load very slowly or not at all.

They have issued a service pack etc.....

Thank you ALL for your help!
