Hallo,

I do have a strange problem. When I start Internet Explorer it takes at least 10 seconds to start the program. After it started, I can use IE at normal speed. I scanned for Adware, malware, virusses etc. but the whole system is clean. I removed the Google bar and nothing changed. With Firefox doesn't occur this problem. What's causing this delay? I searched the internet and saw that this problem occured by more users but didn't find any solution. Mayby you can help me?

Thank you.

Do you have the Windows Firewall on, or any other Firewall on?

No, not a single firewall is running.
The only active components are Norton Antivirus Corporate edition and PestPatrol.

Ten seconds is not a bad load time when you first start a browser - especially with an anti-virus program that needs to hook into it to protect you on each move you make.

If the load seems longer than you recall, I would think the anti-virus program is the reason.

Ok, thanks Tedster, it was indeed the Norton real time protection. So I decided to have a little more patience and keep my protection up to date :-)
Thank you.

Java settings can also slow down startups. It can be configured to launch at startup, which causes the delay, but then is not required to start later. If this is turned off, it just needs to launch/run when a Java applet is encountered.
