Re: IE7 Slow connection
Upgrading to IE 8 won't help with your problem, because your problem is
not caused by Internet Explorer.
Use the Manage Add-ons tool to determine which add-on is causing the
1- Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs tab > 'Manage add-ons'
button > 'Manage Add-ons' window.
2- In the Show box, select 'Add-ons that have been used by Internet
Explorer' to display all add-ons that are installed on the computer. For
each item in this list, select the add-on, and then click Disable under
Settings. When you have disabled all the items in this list, click OK.
3- Start Internet Explorer 7. Go to Tools > point to Manage Add-ons >
click Enable or Disable Add-ons. Now enable a single add-on, then exit
and restart Internet Explorer 7 to see if it works properly. Repeat
until you determine which add-on causes the problem to occur.
Once you've located the troublemaking add-on(s) ask the vendor's
technical support for help.
In general, never upgrade your operating system unless it is working
properly to begin with.
