IE 6 Problem

Question

pinhead    0

On an older system (P3 650Mhz, 256Mb RAM), I've installed Windows XP. Runs fine (if a little slow compared to a 1.Ghz P4 system), but the main problem is IE6 - it takes about 45 seconds to even show the about:blank page.

This only happens when you first start the browser, or you close the browser down then re-open it. Starting a new browser window doesn't have the same problem (CTRL-N).

Anyone got any ideas?

BTW - I regulary clear the cache and temp files.

Under lan settings, make sure you aren't using a proxy server, or configuration script.

I rather use Netscape 6.2.1, but NAV 2002 didn't interfere with IE 6 on my PC with Windows XP Pro Corporate!
