which version of ie?
have you installed any third party extensions or 'add ons'?
you could try resetting it to it's defaults.

IE is slower anyway.
And you probably have extra toolbars. And you may have too much history, too large a cache or some malware. IE attracts malware better than Firefox does.

ie8 downloaded just a day or two back , no different than before , as for my history usually clean them out fairly often no extensions much , may go back and restore defaults setting as well , its not the fact that it freezez on pages and slow as crap its the thought that the puter may be stuffed , have also done spybot malware check too.

Or give ccleaner a run to clear out any file-overcrowding, free from www.filehippo.com.

AGreed. Moved from 15years of IE to Chrome. .

Here's Sriron same as Chrome but without the built in spyware it has when you install it...

here's Opera too, www.opera.com/download/
you can install as many browsers as you like then try them all before selecting the one you like the best
