    Hi. Since downloading Internet Explorer 8 I am having real problems connecting to web sites. Sometimes it just says 'Waiting' and others half the page will load and then it hangs? No problem with Broadband as I have checked connectivity. It is really frustrating. I did uninstall IE 8 and start again but to be honest IE 7 was only a tad better? Any ideas. Thanks

    its possible you may have a virus or malware on the PC - I have removed IE8 from all my PCs as I was getting slow responses - BUT IE7 made a big difference , although I'm now using google chrome and find it better than IE and firefox, much faster
    Do you have an upto date virus scanner and have you run the scanner ?
