Probably accumulated junk. To clear out,
Open Internet Explorer
Open Tools and select Internet Options
On the General tab in the Browsing History, click the delete button
In the window that opens, make sure that at least Temporary Internet Files and cookies is checked. You can select any thing else you would like. Once you have the options selected, click the delete button.

The other thing that happens is many many toolbars get installed with applications. Open Control Panel and select the Programs. In the list select any toolbars you do not use or want and click on them and select remove.

From there, it becomes general maintenance. Running defrag and disk check. Cleaning out old files, making sure there is sufficient disk space for the operating system. With the advent of the digital camera, people tend to collect gigabytes and gigabytes of pictures. This slows down the computer and is a true danger of loosing the pictures forever when the hard disk fails. Accumulated pictures should be backed up to CD / DVD and all but the ones you access often removed from the computer.

Hi, fw4golf.
There's a few things you can try. First, try disabling or uninstalling any toolbars you may use with Internet Explorer. They tend to do more harm than good. Also, try clearing out your cache and cookies. Go up to Tools, Internet Options, and then Clear Browsing History. That should help.
Thanks for posting.

2. Yahoo Messenger 10 - download and install this after you remove previous version of yahoo messenger on your computer

(Note: if you are using different web browser, It doesn't matter. Install Internet Explorer 8 and just don't default it as your web browser)

Try this one. you will surely like the outcome.

Must reboot to connect to internet


It Happens sometime because Machine does not pass information properly so we need to restart our system to reset all settings again.
and Vista still has many bugs on it so these cases are normal until next version release.

Internet explorer is very slow


hi,
data card doesn't give you speed like broadband like speed. it connects you only at a speed of about 144 kbps. For a faster browsing... you can try browsers like firefox(realtively faster than Internet explorer) and opera (where you can disable images or set it to show cached images only ) . browsing will be comparitively faster.

hope to get rated as helpful.
regards
