IE - Not loading External Page first time :(
I am currently having issues with IE (seems to affect IE6, 7 and 8). When users try to launch a new IE window where it is targeted at an external page (or set through home page) IE hangs for a couple of minutes before finally giving up and displaying "this page cannot be found". If i refresh the page it works perfectly! I have tested this in a few scenarios and have discovered that it does not affect Admins (only staff and Students) and that it is definately only External pages that dont load as IE works fine when it is set to open our local Intranet Site. I suspect that this is being caused by something in IE Group Policy but am a little bit stumped (and hugely overworked since the other IT Technician Resigned out of the blue at the start of September).
I have already tried checking Bloxx Login Scripts (LEA Provide our internet Connection/ Filtering etc etc), Have tried disabling IE Popup Blocker (no luck) and have avoided the problem by installing Sharepoint Services and setting as homepage but really need to get this sorted....
any advice would be hugely appreciated :)
