I.E 6.0 selection

I upgraded my I.E. to 6.0 and I noticed that the drop down selection of Web sites takes forever to function now. After the first invocation of that function all is speedy in that respect but the first one, every time I fresh start the computer, takes a long time.
Is this a "bug" in 6.0 or can I do something to correct it?

Thanks

Have you tried purging the History List?  Maybe it has indigestion.

Well I don't have that problem. But my list is only has maybe 10 entries. The longer the list the longer it takes for it to load when first initialized. So perhaps you have a long list.

This is the registry key where the list is housed.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

Hmmm... now that I've looked at it I have 25 listings. I will reduce and see if it helps.

And, there is always the possibility that a virus/trojan is looking at the list, too.

Yeah 25 listings isn't that much. So maybe something else is going on. You might consider doing a repair on IE.

WindowsUpdate is always wise, to ensure you've downloaded patches and fixes, such as this:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/critical/Q321232/default.asp
These are also helpful.

You may also wish to install any Browser plugins such as Macromedia's Flash Player, Shockwave, etc., and others not functional after upgrading to IE6 which require a reinstallation of the plugins that may also play a part of the problem for you.

Clearing history, temporary internet files, running maintenance (cleanup/scandisk/defrag) and rebooting is ALWAYS helpful to improve performance and eliminate problems.  Also, corrupted cookies, problems on autocompleted items stored, etc. can compound problems.

Personally, I think shockwave is a disaster.

If you want to purge the system of junk, use this:
