    IE Favorites Slow

    On IE 5.50.xxx whenever I make a change to Favorites (which are dispalyed in the vertical bar) IE locks up for several minutes. It didn't do that some time ago. Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it? Thanks!

    How many entries do you have in your COMPLETE list?
    The more entries, the longer it will be to open.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    On a similar note, I find that copying the FAVORITES folder to a network drive takes considerably longer than you would think for such a small directory.

    I found it is related to the Virus Scanning software in use on both the desktop and the server... double-scanning.... for potentially damaging URLs

    Maybe the slow access to the Favorites is due to your VSCAN software?
