    IE7 Vista Home Premium- iii.co.uk slow ......

    Hi,

    I'm hoping someone can help with this please

    my father uses this website www.iii.co.uk
    It works fine on XP with IE6
    but I got him a new Dell with Vista Home premium and IE7
    When you go to http://www.iii.co.uk it takes up to 10 minutes to load, and the same for the discussion forums.

    Other sites seem fine. I have tried installing the latest firefox and the same problem occurs and also tried http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...9RPcy8dg%3d%3d
    which lets you run IE7 to look like IE6 but no luck any ideas ?

    thanks alot

    erm Using Opera and IE in Vista (on my computer) for your link, and it is very slow loading..........I always use the BBC site to check my connection as there are no adverts there, which could slow your computer down.

    It's just a very slow site. It's only works fast on the older machine because most of the page is cached onto the hard disk already.

    nope, i tried on more than one pc after clearing the cache as well
    anyway I'm talking ridiculously slow, minutes upon minutes, not just being impatient for a high graphics site

    exalibur, slow as minutes upon minutes yea ?

    just cleated my cache and tested it on xp and takes about 4 seconds to fully finish loading
