Hi, I have an intermittent problem thats been plaguing me for awhile now. Sometimes for a few minutes, IE8 is very slow , appears to hang, never gets to webpage. I had the same problem with IE7 , thats why I went to IE8. Originally I thought the problem was a lost DSL connection. So I installed Google Chrome and did a test. Whenever my IE was not responding I would try chrome, worked fine, even with the same URL, wham worked fine instantaneous. Then a few minutes later IE would come back. Its really irratating. I'm running XP, have all the service packs and updates, am running anti-virus, with updates etc etc.
I know, so why not stay with chrome, well thats not an answer to the problem.
I appreciate your thoughts.
