IE8 often slow to connect
I have google as my start page in browsers. Firefox and Chrome bring
it up in about 2 seconds. sometimes IE brings it up in 2 seconds,
other times it takes 10-20 seconds. It seems that if IE has been used
recently, it is fast. If it hasn't been used for a while it is slow,
but that isn't a hard-and-fast rule.

Is there some setting or something that can cause this?

Re: IE8 often slow to connect
Hello,

Try running IE8 with add-ons disabled.

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No
Add-ons) to start IE8 without any add-ons. Try using the browser and see if
is faster now.

If it is much faster now, start IE8 normally, go to Tools (if the menu bar
does not appear, hit the Alt key on the keyboard) > Manage Add-ons. Here,
disable all the add-ons you don't need under 'Currently Loaded'

I disabled several things and I have not had the slow connection
problem since. That seems to have fixed it, thanks!
