    IE8 very slow to open url's when browsing websites. Happens on all sites.
    IE8 takes about 6 seconds or more once I click. I don't have the problem
    when using other browers such as google chrome or firefox. I'm on comcast
    and using their Norton Suite. How can I speed things up.

    . Is my PC running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?

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

    Did you used to have the Comcast freebie McAfee Security Center installed?

    Had another Norton application or a McAfee application ever been installed
    (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled on the computer when you
    bought it)?

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

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
