    FYI – The new version of MS Explorer (7.0.5730.13) is the slowest browser I
    have ever used, bar none….My system “updated me†automatically today to this
    new version, and it is super slow.

    I have immediately switched now to Firefox and have noticed much better page
    loading speed.

    You better fix this or you will lose many other frustrated business
    customers and users like me this year.

    There is no excuse for this obvious decline in browsing speed.

    Regards, Mike.

    No such problem here, even running IE7 Beta1.

    You may have a horked (dirty; bad; flawed) install of IE7. I suggest that

    1. Uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6) per

    2a. Uninstall all toolbars and third-party Windows Themes (including Window

    2b. Disable all Norton Add-ons, if applicable.

    3. Reinstall IE7 exactly per, and using as the installation
    source, not Automatic/Windows Update.

    4. IMMEDIATELY go to and install any
    critical updates offered. If a "Root Certificates" update is listed in the
    Optional category, you might install it, too, to take full advantage of
    IE7's additional security.

    Dear PA BEar. Thank you for taking the time to reply, but I disagree.

    I already uninstalled IE 7 because it was so slow, and it DOES NOT
    automatically roll back to IE 6 (which is also what the MS website claims).
    IE 7 loads right on top of IE 6 with the automatic update, and if you
    uninstall IE 7, it all goes. I checked for IE6 in Add/Remove programs, and it
    is no longer there after the automatic update (which I wish I could go back
    in time and cancel!).

    While I appreciate the comment, I also seriously doubt I have a "horked"
    install, as it was an automatic update, standard install, and I NEVER install
    anything weird on my computer.

    If its slow, it is because MS has delivered a slow product in my humble

    If they truly would allow a rollback to IE6, then they should make this
    earlier download available from the IE download page for their users, WHICH
    THEY DON'T !!

    I am switching to Mozilla, until MS gets its act together on browser speed,
    as there is no obvious and easy way for me to get back to IE 6, and IE7 is
    not ready for prime time browsing speeds.

    I'm a business user and don't have time for technical mumbo jumbo and
    hassles like this. It should work fast and correctly straight out of the
    gate, every time, without exception. No point in wasting more time on a
    company that doesn't get how important access speed is to a daily business

    REgards, Mike.

    subsequent to this email, I found the IE 6 download page which is still
    available on MS website, and rolled back now to IE 6

    How, pray tell, did you download/reinstall IE6 in WinXP?

    If the machine was fully patched at Windows Update, you wouldn't have needed
    to install 928089 as it's fix has been included in every Cumulative Security
    Update for IE7 since MS07-016 (Feb-07).

    If you uninstalled IE7, you were left with no IE whatsoever? (I've had
    occasion to uninstall IE7 several times since IE7 Beta1 was released and
    ended up with a fully functional IE6 after doing so. Then again, I
    installed IE7 properly and did not use any Registry cleaners after doing
