Internet Explorer issues

by nilocp / November 21, 2012 6:03 PM PST

I run Internet Explorer 8.0.6 on both my desk top and laptop both running Windows XP SP3.

Both systems run slowly and IE continually freezes on both machines.

Is there a known issue with IE?

On another IE issue, I use it as my main browser ,but on Ebay I am unable to load pictures. If I use Mozilla I can load the pics. Ebay says it is an IE issue.

Maybe all tied in together??

Any suggestions?

With IE, I rarely fix this. But let's say I try.

Then I remove all plugins and try again. Your post does not appear to share what you tried.

In reply to: Sorry

But I can only guide. If removing, turning off plug ins is not something you can do, then use other browsers that work.
