By default IE7 turns on clear type and it's new phishing filter. If you are using a standard CRT monitor turn off clear type. The phishing filter checks web sites to make sure they are legit before loading them thus resulting in some slowdown. This too can be turned off in internet options.

If you are running a new HP 1905 then I don't suggest turning off clear type. If things seem 'fuzzy' then more than likely your resolution is set too low. Try setting it to the maximum your video card will allow. That is going to make things clear but small.. So while in display properties also choose extra large fonts and see how that looks. You can set individual things like the menu and title bar font sizes too. Experiment until you get things set to your liking and you will enjoy the new monitor a lot better.
