Hi! I am having trouble with my ie not wanting to open up right away. It takes about 2 minutes after double clicking the icon before it will open. Any suggestions?

How much memory do you have on your computer?
what is your processor speed?
For me, if I run into a problem like that I uninstall and then reinstall

I have a Dell Dimonsion 4100 with pentium 3 processor at 800mg and a 19gb hard drive. The program is still not opening up until after 2 mins. What a drag! I have removed a program that I thought was causing it, but it did not help. This is wearing on my nerves. The problem started on Monday and has not let up. Could you help?
Thanks,
Kristi

Have you checked your msconfig to see what is running in the background. Checked for viruses, trojan or ad-ware or spyware?

Also remove all programs from the start up tab in msconfig that you don't need, have you defraged lately?

Use the following links to check for viruses, trojans and ad ware:

Hi! Rick.
When I boot my computer, it says that there is an error in your config.sys file on line 18. Could this be causing the problem?

I have defragged and cleaned the disk twice already this week. It said it found errors and fixed them. How would I fix the problem with my config system

Easy to find out, go to start, run, type in msconfig, click on OK

In the new window click on the config sys file, look at line 18 and post it here or check for the program to see what it is.

Also while you are in there go to the start up tab and post the programs that are listed there in this forum so we can see what is running in the back ground.

OKay, not to sure about the config sys. Let's do this can you copy and paste them here and we can look at them. Maybe we can figure this out for you.

It sounds like a program is set for startup in the config.sys file. Maybe we can figure out what it is and then go from there.

Just don't change anything yet.

DO you have a program like Screen shot where you can take a picture of the window. IF not I don't know what to tell you.

What I would try is to take out the 2 checks where nothing is beside them, save, close and reboot.

Try that and if it doesn't work put the checks back in and I will post the picture of the config sys in this post and we will see if we can get someone to look at it.
