I am running windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9 update version 9.0.12(KB2761465) all was working O.K. until about 6 weeks ago when some pages do not load correctly and the response from some sites is very slow. I have downloaded and installed Google Chrome to compare and all works O.K. using Chrome. Have I got a corrupted update ? in explorer 9 and if so how do I check and sort it out?

Thanks . I thought IE 10 was not fully compatible with windows 7. IE 9 is fully updated from automatic windows updates. No outstanding updates are listed. Worked fine until around 6 weeks ago

IE10 is only at Release Preview stage for W7. Doubt that it will solve the problems. Try reset as Jock1e has suggested. Try running with out add-ons (accessed through all programs, accessories, system tools) and see if it is ok then. Try the problem sites in compatibility mode. Lastly stick with Chrome which IMO tends to to be better.

Many thanks have now tried the "reset" option and it seems to have cured the problem
