Windows 7: IE9 Waiting for response from XXXXXXX

IE9 Waiting for response from XXXXXXX

I have been getting this in several sites lately. It's in the status bar at the bottom left of IE9.

Name:  waiting.....JPG
Views: 732
Size:  11.1 KB
In this instance the browser page went white but didn't say it had quit responding, for over 5 minutes. Hitting the refresh button opened the site again.
This happens with almost any site I visit. The site will generally open fine but when navigating through it, the delay happens.
My download speed hasn't fallen off, it's about 11-18Mbs, no proxies in use.

Any ideas would be helpful.

I've found these steps usually fix IE9, Gary. I've listed them in the order I found that worked for me. (I also provided the relevant links in case others who are less familiar with the procedures read this. Not because I thought you needed the info. )

1. Try to run IE9 with no add-ons:
Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (with no add-ons)

2. Reinstall or repair Internet Explorer

3. How to reset Internet Explorer settings

4. Uninstall / reinstall

5. Run sfc /scannow command & check the result.

6. System file damage

Thanks Lee, running with no addons helps some things but then IE is a bit useless.

I've done the sfc /scannow, run 4 AV/malware scans, one online.
I'll work on 2.3.4. and 6 and see what breaks next.

Did you by chance install that IE9 security update that MS posted recently? My IE9 went to the dogs after that.....Uninstalled the update and all was well.

My IE9 has those issues too.

Stopped using it. Firefox works great and has the enormous benefit of the NoScript add on.

It's likely, I install all MS updates, will check. This has been going on for a long time though. Do you have the KB number?

I've tried FF before and came to mistrust it. I don't know nor can find where it stores its "stuff", temp files, bookmarks and I understand it will upgrade on it's own.

Tired of waiting
I am not a fan of waiting while Windows 7 does their fading and drop down menus. I want my drop down menus to expand at once. I don't want screens to fade in and out - just do it. However, I cannot find where to make those changes in Windows 7. Can anyone help.
