Hello,  I am using internet explorer 8 and my problem is my laptop is sooo slow. I have tried everything I know to do. I have Mcafee virus protection, have ran scans, it says I have no virus's, but when I am browsing the net, I keep getting,,paused, I guess you'd call it? It is like its loading something when all I'm doing is reading a web page. It continues doing this all the while I am on the net, stops and loads,and loads..I have to keep hitting any key,,hit enter several time..anything to start my page again. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Slowness, freezing and performance issues as you describe are not uncommon, especially with older computers. If you're not finding any malware, please refer to this guide: Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware.
