Ok, the problem is on my wifes laptop, and if I can't fix it its going to get ugly real soon. Running a Dell Inspirion, with IE 8 and windows Vista. Also run PC Micro for anti virus, and results are clean. Surfing from one website to the next is fine, pages load just fine. The problem occurs when she is trying to access a site that requires a login/password....i.e comcast.net for email, amazon.com for shopping cart, land end shopping cart, etc... Basically, we can load pages quickly at amazon.com, landsend.com etc....but when you try to get to your "account or shopping cart, etc....it just takes forever, and usually wont let you access the page. (Page loads on Hearth.com and all the other sites are fine) Please point me in the right direction of what I should be looking for. (I checked the settings compared to my desktop upstairs, and they all seem to be the same....same OS, same IE, Trend Micro, etc... I gotta figure this out as the mrs's needs to get her shopping done. Any help would be great.
