I removed a virus sometime ago and ever since IE 7 takes 1 min 36 sec to start. Firefox is not affected at all. I dont recall the virus or the software used to remove it. IE7 is slow to respond to active window request but others respond as expected. Other programs boot as expected. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary on task manager or hijack this. Virus/spyware scans of various platforms dont produce any results.

IE problems are way out of my comfort zone for troubleshooting so starting with basics will not insult my highly average skills. In 15 years of computing I have never had a problem with IE.

I have gone to network properties and reinstalled Client for MS NW, netbios, TCP/IP. Etc.. but that is it.

thanks guys!!!!!

Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum~ TMacK

Hello jpd9930,

What is your operating system? I have an idea, but it will only work on certain OS's.

Try restoring internet explorer to its default settings. It should be somewhere on the tools menu.

Please read Using LSP-Fix to remove Spyware & Hijackers and download the LSP-Fix from it's download location.

LSP-Fix is a utility designed to remove and repair problems associated with a a type of software called a Layered Service Provider, or LSP. LSPs are designed to integrate directly into your TCP/IP layer, the protocol you use to communicate on the Internet, in order to manipulate data that is sent across it. The LSPs are installed in such a way that each LSP in the TCP/IP handler are chained together. If one of these LSPs is removed incorrectly, that chain could become broken, possibly removing your ability to connect to the Internet or a network.
Because you just want to fix a broken chain, click the Finish button, (designated by the green box in Figure 1. of the Tutorial).
LSP-Fix will automatically fix the LSP chain and hopefully restore connectivity back to the network.

Or you can try Winsock2Fix, if that fix didn't work .
When you run it, click on ReG-Backup button first to backup the registry, and then click on the Fix button.

Thank You to fellow Mod boopme for the above.
