hi, my internet explorer is going very slow for the past month, the green light bar at the bottom
seems to be lagging sometimes for about 5 mins!
has anyone got any ideas?
ive got win xp pro
1 gig ram
2000mhz processor
120 gig h/drive
and how can i check if something is slowing my internet down?
thanks, hank!

I had this problem a while ago.Have a check to see what programs are running in the background,I had a few that were starting up with the pc,that were not needed,simply stop them.Also have a look at the add on's for IE.Open up IE,go to tools,manage add on's,and again stop what you don't need running.In my case it did help.

Some people find that clearing the Temporary Internet Files folder helps.
