    Personally, I don't feel it has anything to do with 'add-ons', virus
    programs, etc...as my explorer only started doing this since it was UPDATED
    by Microsoft this past week. Which would mean that Explorer 8 is not
    compatible with one of the updates this past week. As I have run Norton 360
    (full scan) also Micro's Security Essentials. I even had to go to a restore
    point to get it to stop. Now I have to wait till Microsoft gets a fix.
    Until then we are screwed. :)

    You have N360 & Microsoft Security Essentials installed and you're wondering
    what's wrong? Oh, my...

    Check list for installing Microsoft Security Essentials
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com...t/thread/bf757e6a-e320-4a67-92bc-767e6acb26c4

    Can I install Microsoft Security Essentials [or any other
    anti-virus/anti-spyware application] to clean up my already-infected
    computer?

    Did you have enough common sense to shut down Norton 360 before you
    downloaded the updates, and uninstall said updates if you were having
    problems?

    I too noticed a very slow Internet Explorer 8 after downloading it.
    I would have reverted back to Internet Explorer 6 but there is much todo
    about possible holes that could allow hackers or somebody so I didn't do it.
    I too sent in to this site for a solution.
    I too received an answer asking if I had installed any add ons.
    So, I responded that I didn't know what an add on was, I simply down
    loaded Internet Explore 8. It is so slow I can almost drink a cup of coffee
    while waiting for it to load.
    Does anyone honestly think that Internet Explorer will ever fix this problem
    or are they going to let the customer gain patience with the problem.
    If no one has a quality or a good answer than they should not respond to
    these questions, giving the impression that they know how to fix it.
    I would revert to Internet Explorer 7 but I read horror stories about it.
    Evidently the problem is not wide spread or it would be addressed often.

    Oh yes, I should tell you that I have since found out about add ons by other
    help than I received here.
    At the time I downloaded Internet Explorer 8, it was a naked download.
    Nothing added. Later after all the updates were installed I added McAfee
    Site Advisor. Then I added Google for search.
    Pretty much bare. But nothing I added slowed it down any more that it
    already
    was.
    for shame....
