IE7 sometimes won't connect
I have posted this heading before, but it appears to have disappeared.
My problem (happily now was) is that IE would sometimes display
"Connecting...." but cause no traffic and use no resources while it failed to
connect. Frequently it would connect satisfactorily the next time.
Various suggestions were made to me, for which I thank the contributors,
including suspecting an interaction between AVG and IE.
I have now removed both IE and AVG and then reloaded them, in that order.
Happily now the problem has gone away. It was only ever intermittent, so it
has been a while before I can be confident that the fault is now no longer
I use IE7 with XP SP3 automatically updated.
AVG Free 8.0
Cable ISP 2.0 Mb hard wired via a router
So I offer this up, thanking those who I regret I cannot name, in case
anyone else should chance to suffer from a similar problem.
