Answer

Hmmmm
You need to do these steps as they are the most popular reasons for slowing down
1- Clear history and cookies
2- Delete temporary internet files
Both 1 and 2 are in Internet options from Control panel
3- Delete "Temp" folder content (and not the folder), it is in your C: > documents and settings > YOURUSERNAME > Local settings > Temp, this will solve a lot of problems
4- Restart computer and try again

Do Step 3 if you are using WinXP, if you have VISTA, then step 3 would be
3- Delete "Temp" folder content (and not the folder), it is in your C: > Users > YOURUSERNAME > AppData > Temp, this will solve a lot of problems
