Internet Explorer 7 - Slow to load Initially

Posted on 2010-01-08
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
Hi All,

Recently a few users at the office have been having some issues with IE7.

Basically it has been working fine, then all of a sudden if they launch IE it takes 3 or 4 minutes for the initial home page to load, once this has loaded it all performs okay.

The only way  I have found to resolve this is to either remove IE7 and re-install or upgrade to IE8, but there must be a better fix.

They have got all of the latest updates and everything installed.

Anyone else seen this and found a fix?

    try a ping test
    ping <your homepage>
    if the nuber for the ping is lo then it is not the conection to that server.
    if it is hi then you shoud check if the connection protecol is up to date.
