I have IE 6.0 with SP2 and running on DSL. Going from screen to screen takes minutes. Sometimes it just hangs up and task panel won't even come up.

I've run spyware, adware, Norton anti-virus.

Do you have a program or programs running in the background taking up a lot of system resources?

Have you installed new programs lately?

Have you checked for adware, spyware, and viruses? These might slow things down.
