    Hi,
    For about a week now my IE is very slow - everytime that I click on a link its waiting for one second and only then opening the link, no matter what link, from google or from my favourits... it's so slow it's driving me crazy and I can't work...

    also it takes 3 times more then usual to open the browser itself, and sometimes there are problems with opening new windows...

    I had IE 5, I've Installed IE 6 but it's still the same...

    I have P3, 733mhz, 128mb ram

    Where is the problem?

    Also my windows media playe got slow response too, but maybe thats because of a codec I've installed and not relavnet to the thread...

    Scan on-line for virus, click the colored link at the bottom of my post.

    ***

    Internet Explorer 5.x/6.x comes with a repair tool. To use it, go to the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel; Scroll and click to highlight 'Microsoft Internet Explorer 5/6.x' in the Install/Uninstall window; Then click on the Add/Remove button; Select 'Repair' the current installation of Internet Explorer radio button; Click on OK. Restart your computer when prompted.
