I am not sure whether I am in the right place, but here goes.
Until recently, I have had a very old IE version. I had never bothered to update, as everything seemed to be working ok.
However, I had heard that there is poor security with very old versions, so I updated to IE7.
Follwing this, my Internet connection seems to be much slower.
For example, when clicking on one of my Favourites previously, it would connect in the blink of an eye.
Now however, it starts searching for IE, then seems to take an age to actually connect to the site in question. ??
I have done a Defrag, Disk check, plus malware sweep in Safe Mode. It is still slow as described.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
