    I already have IE8 since january, but I keep getting that annoying message to
    download it. I find IE8 is really slow and do not see any improvement over
    having IE7 which worked much faster!

    Hi,
    It's likely that a third-party security/antispyware program interfered with
    the installation of IE8 and that program, or another, is causing the
    slowness.

    At http://www.enhanceie.com > Troubleshooting, look for:
    * Problem: IE always goes to
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx
    * Problem: IE Startup takes a long time (>3 seconds)
    * Problem: Slow Page rendering

    Also, a browser add-on could be causing the slowness.
    For troubleshooting information see:

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) as well as your IE version
    when posting in an IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next
    reply.
