My_yahoo home pages displays slowly...''back'' is slow/hangs

I use my_yahoo.com as my home page in iexplorer. Lately, the home page loads slowly and the ''backspace'' when used doesn't take me back. I believe some sort of malware or advertising site is being accessed.

I do not have this problem, when I use my_yahoo from another computer, just my home machine.

I use Norton Internet Security and do frequent scans for items...they all come up clean.

Do you know what might be causing the slowness or what is being accessed?

Thanks for your help!

Try firefox for your browser...this is a option for you to use...if not happy just go back to your IE. Yahoo in the past 4 years to me has had many page loading problems for me an I think this to be server related as they do have 4 servers that have to back up one server, if that server is down...on that note: Try firefox. Also clear your cookies and your registry and Temporary Internet files. Click tools up top and check your internet options.
