IE 8 hangs too often!
'upgraded' to IE8 recently, ISP also 'upgraded' download speed (to > 8 MBps)

since then connection is going downhill

Internet Explorer sometimes very fast, then it starts to hang when clicking
on a link to open a page
sometimes only recourse is to close IE and start again, works most times but
sometimes page won't load at all..

Unfortunately same prob also with Firefox, Chrome, though in diminished
amount

tried already most of the ususal remedies

any bright ideas are wellcome

Carlos/London

Re: IE 8 hangs too often!
Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2) as well as your IE version when posting in an
IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

=> Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
Explorer (No add-ons).

Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode [Applies to IE7 &
IE8 in all OSS]

2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737

3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed IE8?

4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

Re: IE 8 hangs too often!
Which "usual remedies" would those be? Most of us can't read minds or see
what you've done. As your having the same issues with firefox and chrome
logic suggests that IE8 isn't your problem.
