I have tried many things, but I can't seem to get IE to display the home page in a timely manner. I installed Chrome, and it seems to come up very quickly, especially compared to the minute or so for IE. I have disabled plug-ins, and then enabled them, installed Java 7 update 9, and looked for other suggestions such as running fix it and changing rendering to be software. Other computers connected to the router work fine. I read somewhere that javascripts can sometimes cause problems. My home page is Google. I am running Microsoft Essentials. Everything else on the machine appears to be working as it should.

I would apreciate any ideas of things I might try.

Open IE, go Tools>Internet options>Advanced tab and click on "Reset" button.
Restart IE.
Same issue?

Thanks for the suggestion. I am sorry that I had forgotten to mention that I have tried resetting IE a few times. I did it again last night as I had applied 13 Windows updates.

The result is that the problem has not gone away. I don't know what sort of things IE does when it is launched, but I think that the problem is related to one or more of the steps needed to bring up my home page. I tried another home page, but that didn't have an effect. I have tried going from IE 9 to IE8 and there wasn't any difference, so I went back to 9; that was a couple of days ago. I tried the MS Fixit, and that didn't work either.

Thank you for helping me with this issue. Below you will find the log for security check. I continued searching for solutions today and was not able to find anything that worked. Just before you posted your message, I ran combofix based on an issue I had had on a different machine about a month ago. I disabled my antivirus MS Essentials just before running combofix. I will include the log after security check. I will not make further changes to the system until after I hear from you.

Thank you again for your help.

2. Go the Control Panel
3. Click on Program and Features
4. Then uninstall Adobe Flash Player
5. Restart Computer
6. Go to the below link and get the latest Adobe Flash Player
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

I found the above information on page three of the following link:
