IE 8 hangs too often!

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Carlos Kleiber, Feb 15, 2010.

    'upgraded' to IE8 recently, ISP also 'upgraded' download speed (to > 8 MBps)

    since then connection is going downhill

    Internet Explorer sometimes very fast, then it starts to hang when clicking
    on a link to open a page
    sometimes only recourse is to close IE and start again, works most times but
    sometimes page won't load at all..

    Unfortunately same prob also with Firefox, Chrome, though in diminished
    amount

    tried already most of the ususal remedies

    any bright ideas are wellcome

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2) as well as your IE version when posting in an
    IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No add-ons).

    IE8 in all OSS]

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?

    3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed IE8?

    4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Which "usual remedies" would those be? Most of us can't read minds or see
    what you've done. As your having the same issues with firefox and chrome
    logic suggests that IE8 isn't your problem.
