Hi,
When I start a new IE6 instance and try to view a web page (I have my
default page set to about:blank) it takes 20-30 sec to load when I use
Comcast cable. At work, connected to a T1 line, the first page
appears in <1 sec. Between home and work, the TCP/IP settings are
different: automatic and manual, respectively. Could the delay at
home be caused by IE6 detecting the settings each time?
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Roger

I would first do a thorough check for malware. Help with malware:
All MS-MVP Sites.

Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software.

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.

Frank,
thanks for your help. I did check that I didn't have malware.
The answer turned out to be that the browser LAN connection was set to
"Automatically detect settings".
This caused it to look for a configuration file on my company's
intranet, which of course it couldn't get to when
I was at home. Thus the long delay was the network timeout.
Unchecking both boxes in the "Automatic Configuration" section cured
the problem.

I also have the problem with a long bootup. Where do I go to change settings
and do you think I should. I have WindowsXPSP2.

Roger - if you are using your computer at home and at work or on the road,
you may be interested in one of the apps:

http://www.proxyswitcher.com/
http://www.mobilenetswitch.com/
http://www.jitbit.com/netprofileswitch.aspx
http://www.dlao.com/proxycmd/
http://www.interactive-studios.net/products/plugbrowse.htm

Usually they're easier to use than having to go into IE's internet options
all the time, checking and unchecking things.

Roger is talking about the settings in IE at Tools...Internet
Options...Connections tab, LAN settings button. He requires those settings
in the workplace, but not at home, it would appear. It would depend on your
particular situation.
