Which sites are those?

by rtetrev In reply to iexxxx

I have found that, in past versions of IE, some sites get catankerous, or download slow, versus Netscape. Their new version is better, but still.....I would like to know the addresses to these sites, so I may investigate further.
In the meanwhile, you may want to try these suggestions:
[1] Upgrade to the 128-bit version of IE. Some sites ask for high-encryption versions, for some funny reason.
[2] Right-click on the IE icon on your desktop, and check your security settings. Too high, and some sites won't even get logged on.
[3] Oh, good point, check your Advanced Settings, see if you have any file download restrictions.
Let me know what you have found/done, and I'll do my best to help out.
