Yahoo email loads slowly. What can I do to speed

Yahoo email loads slowly. What can I do to speed it up? I have XP and IE8. Computer is a Compaq Presario 5080US, which I understand came out in 2002. Also You Tube loads slowly, with many jerky movements.

Thanks for any help!

XP is for old apps and if you had slow internet connection then all will be slow.Also switch to IE7 it works better on XP.

This means your internet connection is too low. The speed is very low. Please try another provider or wait until you regain good network reception.

Cannot get to my email vie IE8 or chrome, this started in feb.

you have stated the exact problem but try this one:

(this applies to all windows OS)
after opening the internet explorer,
click tools
click internet options
click advance tab
click reset (not the reset advance. you should also close any program, application or browser except the ie that you opened up for the reset)
after that close the browser and open it up again, try to access your email.

if that doesnt work, if you are using windows XP you could try to uninstall the IE8 so you can go back to IE7.

click start
click control panel
click add/remove program
find the IE8 then click uninstall after that restart computer>

try again access your email
i hope this helps.
Pls rate my resolution thanks!

I can't open my Yahoo email account since they changed operating system is Windows 2000 and I can't get IE8.

This works in Windows XP for the 'about:blank' page hanging problem when signing in to Yahoo mail.
The problem is not caused by a virus, trojan, or anything like that! Yahoo have been making changes to the appearance of their home page and also their e-mail. As a result, the screen resolution of 800 x 600 on many PCs will no-longer allow you to sign in. Try changing your screen resolution to 1024 x 768
