    Once in a while I get pages that will not totally load on IE. The system games fine. Any clue what the problem would be? I run win7 and updated Flash player.

    I like how that one add still shows.... those pesky things never go away.

    I could not tell you what it is. Maybe you could try reinstalling/repairing IE.

    Is it safe to assume you are running IE9?
    Try uninstalling and reloading your Java JRE. I've had to do that in the past with IE display problems.
    Tip : Don't forget to uncheck the box for the "Ask Toolbar" crap.

    If it is more than just IE, it must be flash or java or something active up. Just knowing that narrows things down.

    Looks like IE was the problem.

    IE can bog down depending on what extensions you use and/or with certain default features enabled. I always choose custom when setting up IE because a lot of those built in features bloat it.

    I can't say I've been happy with Firefox's speed either though. I don't even install it anymore.

    Opera is fairly fast, but not as compatible with sites as I'd like.

    Iron is fast, but also not as compatible with sites, and won't notify of or install updates.

    I've also found Iron is not as secure as I'd thought.

    Recently I did a fair bit of searching for reviews and tests on browsers, and to my surprise many are saying Chrome is one of the most secure now. I've always heard it's super fast too.

    I was not totally convinced though, despite some security firms like Accuvant saying Chrome's plug-in protection and sandboxing makes it safer than others.

    Then I saw Avast offering Chrome with their free version of AV, and I thought, if Avast trusts it, I have to try it. Granted a lot of free software has random offers, but this is Avast.

    So far I have to say chrome has been much better than I'd anticipated. It's always lightning fast, and I've yet to see any problems security wise. I DO use ad blocking plugins though, as I would with ANY browser.

    On Win, Chrome is the best. You might want to scan your system for adware and viruses... IE picks up trash like a waste management employee. On Linux Firefox works the best (unless you have alot of RAM)
