My log file is attached. Basically the problem I am having is that when I start Internet Explorer it takes maybe 5 to 10 seconds to open. The same thing occurs when I am surfing the web and click on something that has to open another new browser window. However, when I am just surfing within one browser from site to site everything is fine. It's just opening the browser and when I am redirected that I notice the problem. By the way, before today, IE opened immediately so something has changed that now institutes this 5 to 10 second pause. I first noticed this today after I was on a website trying to view a beach cam that I could not view and it had me download some java stuff. It seems like ever since then the problem has occured. I've run adaware, spybot, counterspy, etc... and still having the problem. Many thanks in advance !!
