Researched here but didn't see what I think I am facing. If the answer is already here, please just point me to it and thanks. I have a Slimline HP desktop as well as an HP laptop. My daughter also has a newer model Slimline which she purchased about 3 months ago. We all have IE8. We all use AVAST for AV, ZoneAlrm for firewall, and frequently check for adware/malware using Malwarebytes' AntiMalWare and SuperAntiSpyWare. For the last several months, almost every time we are using IE8, IE8 seems to slow down and then refuse to load a new page. This can happen to all 3 computers. It took my daughter's a month or so before it surfaced, but hers is doing the same thing my 2 PCs are. Only recorse seems to be to restart the PC. After that, it wwill work fine for a while but invariably will slown down again. I am on a home Linksys wireless network (both the desktop and laptop are wireless), but my daughter is not newtowrked in her own home. Still, we face the same issue. Ideas? And thanks in advance.
