Google Chrome takes 15 seconds to load home page on launch
Posted on 2011-05-05
I am running Windows XP SP3, Google Chrome 11.0.696.57.
Problem: Google is slow when launching and opening new tabs.
Details: When I launch Chrome, it takes 15 seconds for the home page to load. The same thing happens when I go to the "wrench" and then click "Options". I see chrome://settings in the address bar but it still takes 15 seconds for the options screen to appear. I also see this happen when opening a New Tab.
Other browsers on the same machine surf fine with no response problems.
I have un-installed & re-installed Chrome in the past and it fixes the problem for a day or two but the problem keeps coming back.
Can someone please advise.
