Hello.. not a computer expert here at all..

 While there are other sites( MSN) that also are slow loading I will just go with Yahoo Sports.. It is getting slower and slower to load and to switch pages.. 30 seconds and more.. some complete hang ups.. notices that internet explorer had to close and re open the web page.. try to refresh and it might just throw a white blank screen up until you refresh again or close out and start over.. oh and the occasional script error

 Now most sites and browsing is ok. but Yahoo... MSN.. and occasionally others are just not right..

 

 Any ideas.. Thanks in advance..

 

 Oh and I called Microsoft about this and had a long wait time so they took my number and said I would get a call back in 226 minutes... LOL... the call is now 125 minutes late so I suspect I will not be getting help from them..

    Thanks for the suggestions and sorry the delay in responding.. Life has it's issues..

     

    I am going to post this for the experts to figure out..

     

     I have done about everything mentioned here and that I could find on the internet as long as I felt safe in the procedures.. Nothing helped.... A lot of these proposed fixes involved checking and/or changing some settings..

     Since nothing was working I decided to see what would happened if I reversed some settings.. .. on most I tried not much changed in a short run threw... Until this one...

     

     open I.E.  right upper corner cog wheel (tools)..... safety..... ActiveX filtering.. And rather than uncheck or make sure it was unchecked as many suggestions wanted...  I put a check on it.. rebooted... and my problems were gone.. the sites and pages that were slow or would not load.. all the errors.... were gone.. pages load in the blink of an eye...  ( and I have done several back and fourths to verify the results)

     

    SOOOO.. I know this is not the way it should be.. but it is... I have found two very unimportant to me issues of pages (or video) ( youtube and such work fine).. could not load unless I reversed that setting.... And I would guess that people that use their computer for different use's than myself may have more problems... but it is working for me until Microsoft decides to come up with a  better product or offer actual real help for their weak products..

    I tried to get Microsoft help.. I called their number... 800-642-7676 and was told I had a 90+ minute wait and would I like a call back... I said sure and got a message that said I would get a call back in 246 minutes.. finally after 504 minutes I got the call back... Talked with a fellow about my problems for a bit over 11 minutes and he finally said he could not help me because I did not have a Microsoft subscription............. Huh .. I said.. he repeated it and I asked what that meant.. He said he would get me somebody that would explain it to me.. I pleaded to please not put me on hold.. He said ..no .no.. it will just be a moment and he would remain on the line... BS.. he was gone I listened to several minutes of how the world would be all fixed with Microsoft 10... then a message of.. my que would be in approx. 70 minutes.. would I like a call back... :crazy:

     

    now that is some smoke and mirrors right there.. :blush:

    Have you tired a different browser?

     

    Which version of IE are you running?

     When I had XP I used firefox and grew to like it.... 4 days ago I decided to try it again and loaded it.. it would not open  either of my mail programs and some other of my usual sits with varying error messages all pertaining to cookies or cookies not being allowed but my settings said cookies were allowed.... I looked on the net for help to no avail.. (a thyme here)..

    I uninstalled it and reinstalled it with same results.. I uninstalled it thinking  I already had problems.. did not need some more... This was before I came up with the ActiveX fix that should not be a fix..

     

     

    IE 11 .. checked and updated many times in the last week or so..

    Either way it shouldn't affect what I've requested.
