Hi guys,

I seem to have run into a problem with Firefox, at first boot up, it is now taking approx 20 secs to recognise we have broadband connection before it loads the home page (google). Then when browsing, it can take minutes to sometimes load a page.

I've run various malware programs to determine if I have a virus but appear to be clean and I think it may be programs running in the background and I'm running autorun to see what I can disable, in the meantime, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, I've tried most of the usual things, emptying cache's etc and temp files etc but still seem to have a problem.

System runs Windows XP and I use standard colour schemes and backgrounds

System is Intel Core2 Quad @ 2.4Gig with 3 Gig of RAM. Am a little confused as to why slow?

As a test, try using whatever version of Internet Explorer you have and see if it works better (I mean faster). If it doesn't then the problem lies elsewhere than with Ff.
