    Try to launch IE7 without add-ons. Its much faster without add-ons.
    You can launch IE7 without add-ons by:
    - right click IE icon on desktop and select Start without add-ons.
    - go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

    1.Have you installed and ran any anti-malware/anti-virus suites and in Safe Mode?
    You can get a free anti-malware application here.
    To get into Safe Mode, restart your pc and press F8 as it is booting. Select Safe Mode and then once you are logged on, run your anti-malware application.

    marques_salazar   I should have mentiond that I had already disabled add-ons, removed a few programs, ran CCleaner, counterspy.   Thank you.

    sk_raja_raja: Thank you.

     I followed your instructions and the links.  I found only cookies and a remnant of 'bugs' screensaver which has been on here for a long time.  Took it out.  No improvement.
    I also found that my logon in safe mode which should be administrator able isn't. I have 2-'normal' and Adminnistrator.  Need to fix that-doubt that is the problem.
    I don't remember how to uninstall and reinstall IE 7 if that is a possible solution.

    Any other advise welcome!

    I don't know what I did but suddenly the OS started acting normally...wish I knew why.
    Thanks for the efforts, I will save them for future reference.
