Experiencing slow page loads on-line. Windows 7 professional

Connected to my home Lan.
The Windows XP unit in the home office loads pages faster than my new desktop. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated....
Clear the Internet cache/Temporary Internet File? In IE, click on Tools, Internet Options, and Delete under Browsing History. IF you have a broadband connection, check the "Empty Temporary Internet files when browser is closed" box under the Advanced tab, under Security options.
How many programs running in the background, or on startup? Run "msconfig" to check. Careful, althought it's part of Windows, you can delete too many things, and then OS won't boot. (I take no responsibility) Don't delete anything from Microsoft on boot up is a safe bet.
