One Slow Website with IE8

    Most websites load snappily for me but there is one that is extremely slow
    (e.g. 30-45 seconds).
    I am using IE8 with Windows Vista SP2. On a different computer, the same
    web site loads snappily; the second computer is using IE8 with Windows XP.
    There is something about the combination of this one website and my computer
    that makes it The website in question is "thesandtrap.com". Prior to about
    one month ago, this website was fine for me; either they changed something
    or something on my Vista computer changed. Inquiries to the web site
    webmaster reply that I am in the minority with this problem. I am trying to
    troubleshoot the problem and appreciate help. Thanks.

    IE8 Version 8.0.6001.18904

    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 and/or SP2?

    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)?

    There is no problem with accessing this site via XP and IE8.

    Mr. Robear -- here is what I tried, and none of these suggestions changed
    the behavior of this one particular site. Thanks anyway.

    The behavior is just as slow with No Add-ons (no difference) as with
    Add-ons.

    I tried RIES and it made no difference. The web site in question is just as
    slow as ever and all my others are as snappy as usual.

    My anti-virus is Avast! version 5.50545. Current subscription. Only
    anti-spyware is Windows Defender. Only firewall is the native Windows
    Firewall that comes with Vista.

    Yes, a Norton a/v application was originally installed with this machine in
    May
    2007. I removed it completely (at least I think so) shortly thereafter.
    As I recall I used a 'Norton Removal Tool' or some such. A Vista advanced
    search looking for hidden & system files reveals no trace of Norton or
    Symantec products on my machine.
