    I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit, IE 8 for 64-bit, quad processor and 8GB of memory. Whenever I click on a URL link to bring up a web site, it can take 5 to 8 seconds b4 the page evens starts to initialize. When I first intalled IE 8, it was extremely fast. I frequently run CC cleaner, SpyBot,Spyware Terminator and registry cleaners and virus checks. Any idea's?

    TIA

    I have to believe some background process or some apps are consuming CPU and RAM. Have you looked in System Configuration to see what's starting when you boot? IE has to be sharing your resources with something. Win +R and type msconfig. Look in startup. If there is a lot of apps starting, try stopping them one at a time and try IE. Be sure to see what you are stopping. You will see your AV app and some others that should be left running.

    For the services, check BlackViper's list of services to see if any can be stopped on your system. He has about the most complete list of services you will find anywhere.

    Good Luck. I hope some of this is new and you will solve the problem using these methods.

    That would seem to be a problem with your internet connection. What kind of connection do you have? Who is the ISP?

    I have a DSL (1.5mb) connection. My ISP is 4Division. I wonder if IE 8, 64-bit could be my problem since it's orphaned by the lack of native 64-bit ActiveX controls and other Web objects. But, as I said in my original post, after installing IE 8 it was a lot faster than it is now.

    You should have both 64 bit and 32 bit versions of IE. Choose the 32 bit version. As you stated there are no 64 bit active X drivers yet. You do not gain anything at this point with 64 bit IE.
