Since downloading IE 8 it is taking me ages to get on web sites (I have tried to post this 3 times) the search bar just says waiting for http etc. Sometimes hlaf the page will load and sometimes not at all. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still no joy. To be honest IE 7 was only a tad better. No probs with my Broadband connection and I have no viruses? Any ideas folks? thanks

Sorry for posting twice but again page had hung and I refreshed it. N.B sometimes the page says 'Done' and only the top banner is present???

Best suggestion I can provide is to forget IE any version and use Mozilla Firefox as your default browser. If you install the Coral IE Tabs add-on, you will not even need IE for Windows Update or any other site which requires IE.

Once you get FF setup and customized to your needs, you will never go back to IE. There are many other alternate browsers available and tried a few, but, IMHO, FF stands above them all.

Are you using any toolbars like Google or Yahoo ? IE8 already has a toolbar so I'd say remove all others.
