    In the excellent tutorial *"How to Fix a Slow Windows Mail"*, found at
    the following link,
    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/72674-windows-mail-slow.html
    a pair of files are offered for download under the *"How to
    Fix the Restricted Sites Issue".*

    By any chance, are these two files reversed? I note that the one
    intended to fix the problem, *"SlowWinmail_Fix.reg"* eliminates the
    registry entry, while the one intended to remove the fix,
    *"Undo_SlowWinmail_Fix.reg" *installs the registry entry with value "1".

    This issue was discussed by "Javacool Moderator" on May 19th, 2007,

    'SB restricted sites slows up Vista Windows Mail - Wilders
    Security Forums'
    (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=1028898)
    (which I found from a link in this forum). The code from his
    fix is:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
    Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_MIME_SNIFFING]
    "winmail.exe"=dword:00000001


    The above code matches the Undo file mentioned above, while the "fix"
    file mentioned above ends up with the following:


    "winmail.exe"=-


    I would greatly appreciate clarification of this. Yeah, I
    know, it's an old problem fixed long ago, but I have been suffering all
    this time and would like to be done with it!

    I might mention that I also have (and need) a large number of
    contacts and various workarounds are all worse than the problem, a case
    of the cure being worse than the disease, at least in my case.

    Thanks to all!

  2. Please state your full Windows version (e.g., Vista SP1; Vista x64 SP2) when
    posting to this newsgroup. In this case, also state your current IE
    version.

    Is this computer fully-patched at Windows Update? [KB931768 (MS07-027) has
    been superseded many times since its release in May 2007!!]

    Do you have Spybot installed and fully Immunized? Do you have ZonedOut
    installed?

    Last but not least, are you seeing slow performance in WindowsMail?
