Re: IE7 sticks on links
Thanks for the response. I had seen that KB article before. I went through
it again (except for the full reset of IE) with no improvement.
I checked out the Manage Add-ons. I had everything disabled except for
Flash player. I deleted and reinstalled Flash player and re-enabled a couple
of Java pieces and 'Research' so that it looks like another XP-Pro machine I
have here. No change.
I should mention couple more symptoms.
1) I have a bunch of Outlook accounts on 3 different POP3
servers/providers. It is set to read them every 10 minutes or so. At least
once a day it gets stuck with a transmission error. It always retries with
no problem. The other workstation on the same gateway and router does not do
2) When I have been having a miserable browsing experience with busy, slow
websites, lots of manual resets, things degenerate to the point that the
website is unviewable. Sometimes clearing the local cache helps, sometimes
not. Rebooting Windows seems to help alot.
3) I have changed the NIC twice. Each time I changed, things would get
better for awhile and then degenerate again after a few hours.
4) This started under IE6. I upgraded to IE7, sacrificing one useful
application that was IE version dependant. The problem remained.
I still prefer IE to Firefox, so I haven't set FF to the default browser.
Any more help would be greatly appreciated.
