Now, while I'm not pointing the finger directly at Windows Internet Explorer 9 which I recently upgraded to from IE8, I do wonder at the coincidence that since doing the upgrade to Windows IE9, everything 'Windows' related seems to be taking forever to load into my laptop.
These include three Mail accounts in Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail [Hotmail], and the latest version of Internet Explorer.
A summary of the browser and mail account details follows, with the loading times highlighted in bold type;
- Windows Mail [ 1 account ] - Version 6.0.6000.16586 (Vista_rtm.061101-2205)....takes 70 seconds, plus or minus 5 seconds to load and complete the update functions.
- Windows Live Mail 2011 [ 2 accounts - and I'm not talking about going online here.....these are accessed from an Icon in my Task Tray ] - Version 2011 - Build 15.4.3508.1109....takes 90 seconds, plus or minus 10 seconds to load and complete thr update functions.
- Windows Internet Explorer 9 - Version 9.0.8112.16421 (Update Version RTM KB982861)....takes 70 seconds, plus or minus 5 seconds to load, but then either freezes for a further 15 to 20 seconds, or indicates that the page needs reloading.
This is all very frustrating, and I'm left wondering if others are experiencing similar problems with the same sort of issues and similar outcomes. I also wonder if there could be some other underlying issues or set-up problems, which may cause the problems with loading that I am experiencing with things Windows.
