I have a computer in school that runs apps ok but IE browser is very slow to display page. For example on google.co.uk page clicking on the NEWS link i can wait for upto 60 secs before the page displays. all other computers in school ok (about2-3 secs to display). have recloned the machine still no joy and used the same image on another identical machine and that computer is ok?
Tried it in another network port on the switch/wall? If not, maybe a dodgy bit of hardware, but if everything else is working fine...
Might be flash or java. Try updating them. Failing that, look and see if there's any other BHOs installed that might be interfering.
