I get symptoms like that when i first load BC pages (reply pages only). I can't scroll down, all i see is the top that fits on the screen, and the message body part just scrolls the cursor. Used to go away once the entire thing was loaded. I don't anymore after re-formatting.

EVERYONE should update their computers, especially if on broadband (e.g. you're cable) I don't believe SP1 slows down anything, infact it has many things that speed up, and simplify your computing. It includes things like generic USB 2.0 drivers (USB 2 drivers from your manufactuer usually suck or are as hard to find as wrens site. Ever tried Mozilla wren? I've used it from time to time, and the tabbed browsing is NICE. You use the mouse wheel, and click on links, they will open on a seperate tab, behind the page you're looking at. That way you can load pages you want to read in the backround, but still keep reading the first one.

Bill, Just a suggestion but if I were you I would get rid of ME and upgrade to Win XP. My Dimension came pre-loaded with ME a few years ago. Was having so many problems with it I upgraded to XP and have been happy ever since. Got to thinking and another thing you might try is deleting all of your Temp Internet files. I guess one that slows browsers down, especially Internet explorer is an overloaded cache. I keep mine cleaned regurally and mine speeds right along. I use the Dell Forum and it has tons of info on systems, software, hardware, ect. If you like I could email you the link.

That is most agreed. ME is the buggiest MS product yet...

ME works for about 2-6 months AMAZING. It'* just 98 SE with a HUGE driver database really, then it goes to ****. XP home is a relatively cheap upgrade edition. If you have ME you can remove IE 6 and go to 5.5 i think (unless it'* need with a service pack)

Yes, if you can, go to 5.5. If I remember right, ME came out with an earlier version, and if you have 6.0, it'* an upgrade and you should be able to go back. It is tricky, though. If you want, I can post some instructions.
