Large delay in IE6 download

I have a network with two Servers on it, one is the domain controller and the other is the gateway with my ADSL connection on it.

A couple of days ago whilst using IE6 on the Gateway machine the whole thing crashed with a blue screen of death.

Since then whenever I use IE6 there is a singifcant delay in fetching any page. This includes the home page which is running on the same machine.

If I open multiple IE windows and request different pages then the request goes out and there is a couple of minutes (or more) delay before the page is displayed. But when they are displayed all the pages in each of the IE windows appears.

However if I browser from the PDC machine no such delay occurs even if I hit the same sites.

During these delays there is no signifcant activity if I look via task manager. There are no significant events been reported in the event logs of either machine. Nor within the firewall logs.

Has anyone any ideas of anywhere else I might look or what might be the cause of the problem?

blue screen generally means a hardware problem. Open the Device Manager and see if there is any devices being listed as having problems.

Also look in the event viewer for any errors reported and then post what the error was here. Especially the Event ID; Source; and Category

Start > Run eventvwr.msc

Also you could try this

Go to control panel  > add/remove programs > Microsoft internet explorer 6
then select  change/remove then select repair.

Now why didn't I think of that. Thanks Carzy that did the trick. The blue screen incidentally was concerning page pool memory (or non-paged pool I can't remember which) and seems to be an error caused by IE6
