Hi, as i said, ie8 runs slow and takes long time to load up if i want to use it,+ when i open it i have 2 iexplore processes.
is this ok? i have tried disabling all the add ons,but it doesnt make a change.
how can i get it fixed?
i did scan my pc for viruses with KIS but not virus found...
ps i'm running windows 7.

IE8 uses multitab processes. So one process for IE8 as a whole, with each tab having its own process. No issues there for you. Make sure its not your internet or something by trying another browser to see if they are also slow. I recommend Chrome or FF to test.

The problem is IE 8 by self, downgrade to IE 7 or use another explorer. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera....exist many options...

i always use firefox, but like my mum,she uses ie,... i got the tab problem fixed,(disabled the java add on)
but it's still slow n takes ages in connect maybe 5 seconds or 7,chrome works fine,firefox like a charm.
so IE8 is absolutely useless?
i dont think we can install ie7 on windows 7.(thats wot i heard) see for yourself
