Spinning Wheel Of Death

I don't know if I ma in the right spot but it seems when I have more than four or five tabs in IE9 open or click on a link to SF from email I get this annoyingly long wait until the page comes up.

I saw it recently badged the SWOD somewhere for another app and thought that is just like the thing I am getting with the IE.

Any ideas please?

well that happens when the processes are hanging cntrl alt del task manager kill the IEexplorer processes then retry it should be fine ussually when there are processes that didn't close the first time are still there and that can contribute to them not opening or doing the so called spinning wheel of death

just found it much easier to kill the process then restart then the issues are resolved
