Help: Slow network browsing on LAN after installing IE7


Recommended Posts


I search all over the web and this forum but still haven't find a solution to this problem. After I upgraded from IE6 to IE7 on Windows XP SP2, when I browse a shared drive on the network (LAN) the first time, it pause or hangs for at least 20 seconds before Windows Explorer responses. After that I can browse the shared drive with no delay. I can reproduce this on all three home computers that I have. If I uninstalled IE7 and revert back to IE6, I don't experience this anymore.

I even tried doing a new install of Windows XP SP2. It didn't help.

Anyone experience this when you upgrade to IE7? How to resolve this?

It could be the problem with the phishing filter in IE7. Try to install IE7 and disable the phishing filter.

I reinstall without the phishing filter as you suggested but still experiencing the same problem. I thought the phishing filter apply when you do web browsing.

This is very frustrating. It seem I'm the only one who experience this.
