IE8 slow startup on new machine
OK so I've installed XP SP3 with all the updates and IE8
now if I reboot the machine and startup IE8 it takes 45 seconds ish to open. I've never come across this before
no Antivirus or any 3rd party software installed yet, so its go me completely stumped.
Any one got an idea what it could be or how to fix this?
Cheers in advance

Yep its the stupid addons! not sure which one mind.
installed the following which has been left enabled and works fine
flash, shockwave, google search
disabled the following
diagnose connection problem
enabled smart filter again
Machine also took 15 seconds less to boot, not sure how that would have interfered

Just encountered this problem myself. Recent MS Updates run and a few of our computers are now painfully slow to bring up IE8. thanks for the link.
I'm going to try and work my way through the advice to see if I can sort - or has anyone else already done this and isolated the add on that's causing the problem?

I thought it was something to do with the MS updates but now looking at the add ons I see good old Google cracked in three new ones today!!
Going to disable them and see if that works?

Yep - seems Google was the culprit - IE8 now loading like well fast!
