Slow opening of IE8

  the hick 09:44 02 Jul 11

When I now start IE8, there is a brief appearance of outline on screen, then a wait of about 7-8 seconds before the 'egg-timer' appears, then it connects. It has been like this for only the past 4 days or so. Is it a sign of further problems, and any tips on how I may correct it? I installed IE8 about 6 weeks ago. Any advice much appreciated.

Try typing ipconfi /flushdns into command prompt.

It should tell you dns cache has been flushed.If so reboot and see if it makes any difference.

or have a look here. link text

Press the fix it and see if that helps.

Make sure you are using compatibility view under tools.

And also make sure all of your add-ons are enabled.
