Happened last Friday morning, Dec,7. IE 9 suddenly taking several minutes to open a website. Quicken wouldn't open my files apparently because it was first trying to check internet for daily updates and couldn't access internet. When we tried it later with Chrome it opened just fine.

Neither McAfee nor Dell Solutions more powerful tools found any virus. Dell said they were getting other complaints about IE 9. Switched to Chrome and it runs great but a few things still need IE. Updates from Microsoft today but they didn't fix the problem. Dell says just uninstall IE 9 and it will revert to IE 8, which hasn't had problems, but I'm not sure the old IE 8 files are on this hard drive. It was completely restored in June after a virus embedded in the operating system.

Wonder if anyone has encountered this problem. Everything seemed fine 8 hours before it went wacky. I'll probably stick with Chrome as my default browser but would like to have IE as a backup. Wonder if I could completely uninstall it and then download either IE 9 or IE 10 for free?
