Do you have a Home Page that opens up when you run IE8?
If so, I wonder if that is the problem. That "Not responding" could be the home page web site not responding. Which Home Page do you have?
When you start IE the next time, cancel that connection attempt, (the red X in the address bar, far right), type in www.google.com and press Enter. Does that load quickly?
Hi my name is Bob and I have Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8.
I just went from dialup to DSL. My problem is that each time I go on line thru IE8 it takes about 2 minutes to connect. I click on task manager and it tells me that IE8 is not reponding. I finally remembered Firefox and have been using it and when I go on line with it works perfect. So I guess my question is. Is there a way to repair IE8. I did have IE7 and I thought if I downloaded IE8 it might eliminate the problem but no such luck.
Thankyou for your time Bob
