Delete everything under Temporary Internet Files (including cookies). Delete all *.tmp as well as ~*.* files.

The other causes can relate to your ISP -- is this DSL/Cable or modem? Has the speed changed recently? Is it all computers or just one or a few?

try clearing the cache & the history. TO clear. YOu can do this by going to TOOLS : Internet Options. When the dialog opens, seleclt the General Tab. To clear the cache, go tot the second or middle section, Temporary Internet FIlesand clicl on Delete Files. Then go to the bottom section, History. Click on Clear History. Then click on okay and shut down. Try restarting and see if there's an improvement.

had same problem,cause was a program I had running.

it was ADSUBTRACT PRO,it's a cookie & popup manager/monitor program,if your running any similar type program,that acts as a proxy,that might be the problem.

when I disabled it's startup at boot my browser now runs properly.I still use it when I finish surfing,because it's the fastest way I know to get rid of the cookies & temp files.

goto control panel, add/remove programs, uninstall ie5.5. You will restore your previous IE version. Try to connect now. If it opens fine goto www.microsoft.com and download ie5.5 and run the set up again. If it still takes a long time to open check back here for more answers.
