IE 8 sluggish

Specs: Windows XP
I recently read some older posts of your support with slow internet explorer speeds. I was wondering if you could help me as well. I have installed a new version of McAfee (virus scan version 13.3) and it has not found anything. I did download and run the Hijack program referenced in the earlier posts but am not clear what to do with it.

Thank you very much for your help in advance!

You can scan your computer in Safe Mode with updated anti virus and updated anti spyware software.

Thank you for your advice so quickly. I did reboot in safe mode and did a full scan. There were over 180,000 items scanned and no files found to be infected in any of the various areas.

Do you have other ideas of what to look for to speed up IE?

Thank you,

Thank you. I did try CCleaner and it seemed to remove tons of things and straighten out my registry.

I think that the system is running a bit better now. Is there any reason to run the hijack program and look for further improvements?

Thank you,
