When starting Explorer to access my Yahoo Email, I have iexplore.exe running from the Program folder. Watching Task Manager, I can tell the iexplore.exe is causing my system to absorb resources from the CPU time. So, I get 15 second delays due to this when changing websites. My ISP is thru a cable service and has very fast times on Speak Easy Speed Test:

Download: 5456 kbps
Upload: 547 kbps

I think there is some sort of inquiry by iexplore.exe program happening each time I change website.

Any ideas how to turn it off? :thumbsup:

I use Windows Live OneCare to protect my system and Ad-Aware also.

Hi All,

With the help of IE7 customer support, I have found the following fixes:

Use Start - Run - (type each of the following) - click OK, then delete everything in the folders.

Next reboot pc and repeat pressing F8, select Start with Networking.

Open Internet Explorer to this website:
and "Scan Now"

Also use this webpage to verify a file you suspect as a virus or bug:

Also I downloaded the MS updates on Dec 11, 2007.

My speed is back!

Thank you for reporting back bry1216.
Did either scan detect anything malicious?
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
