On an old computer using XP, IE takes a really long time to open. After double clicking it sits there for 10 or 20 seconds then opens and takes another 30 seconds to open the home page. Any idea why this could be? Thanks.

Hi,

Could you post the specs of this computer. Also what version of IE are you using?

Windows XP
Home Edition Version 2002
Service Pack 2

IE version 6.0.2900.2180

After IE opens, XP Security keeps asking I want to move forward since the homepage is not a "trusted site." Yet I have listed it as a trusted site in the security center. Huh?

Thank you.

That's not the complete specs. How much RAM do you have for example? But right off the top, you should download Windows XP Service Pack 3 and IE6 is obsolete. You need to upgrade to IE8 or use another browser. This setup leaves you very vulnerable to infections. But we also need to know the make and model of your computer.

I second that, you should update to sp3 and Internet explorer 8. Then if it doesn't help the issue post the rest of your system specs. :)
