    Hi, I just have a general question. I've noticed that when I open Internet Explorer from the main start page, it never loads the pages properly. It always really lags and never goes to whichever website I type into the address bar. Then, I'll go to my desktop, open up IE or Mozilla, and it works fine from the desktop. Is there any reason for this? Or is it just my computer? I've noticed it happens to my mom's as well, so maybe it has to do with my internet connection, but who knows!

    It's probably not relevant at all.
    However, please check and make sure your IE has all the defaults.
    Go to Start page > type default programs > click it > click Set your default programs > ( wait ) > left side, click at Internet Explorer ........
    does it say This program has all its defaults?
