IE 8 Freezes my Internet Access
I am running XP, SP3 and Internet Explorer 7. I have high speed Cable access
to the Internet.

Every time I install IE 8 I find that when I attempt to access the Internet
it is either very slow or I am unable to get on at all.

I have again removed IE 8 and will only update my system manually omitting
IE8.

Thanks for any suggestions or input from others.

Re: IE 8 Freezes my Internet Access
Given your other thread here ("Unable to shutdown PC normally"), you may be
seeing the results of a hijackware infection, BJ.

Both threads should have been posted in the WinXP-specific newsgroup:
