Please don't post your email addresses in forums, whether these forums or elsewhere. Forum "Bots", (robots), trawl forums for email addresses for spamming. You surely do not want spam.
IE problems can often be traced back to bad Add-ons. Check through your IE Add-ons, (Tools > Manage Add-ons), and look for anything foreign. You can do an elimination test if you wish.
Defragging would not have helped, and I see you used some "Registry Cleaner". That can be bad news. Such optimisers often cause more damage than they fix.
(I have asked the Forum Admin to edit out your email address. This will be done after the weekend).
Have Dell Dimension 4600 with Windows XP home edition and service pack 3. Connected a router 2 months and all was fine until a few days ago when i noticed that it took about 1 min. to connect to IE web site of Yahoo or MSN or any other and when i clicked onto a link it would not take me there and froze for awhile and stayed on original page.
I cleaned all the cache, cookies, history defraged and also a registry defrag. Went to several restore points, but none worked
If i get an email in Yahoo or MSN and i want to click on a jpeg or video or any link it will hot bring it up.
I still have AOL too and have no problems with it
Hope somone can help---Thanks
