Can you disable your antivirus and firewall to check if they are causing the problem.

I am having a similar problem on both my PC (running Vista Home) and my laptop (XP Home) and it started on both about two weeks ago. As well as some, not all, and not always the same, websites loading painfully slowly or timing out, I receive a "website not found message" from going from a link but if I refresh, sometimes 2 or 3 times, it loads. Strangely the "website cannot be found" comes up from a Yahoo Search, even though I use Google for all my default searches and not Yahoo. Also when using Outlook, often the links result in a "page not found" or "website not found" page opening, even though a subsequent link from the same source, mostly TripAdvisor forum posts, works fine.
I belatedly updated from IE7 to IE8 over the weekend on both machines thinking/hoping this would resolve the problem but it hasn't. Disabling my Antivirus (AVG Free) and Firewall (Windows Firewall) has no effect.
Any further suggestions?

Before trying anything else, firstly reset Internet Explorer then see if it has also fixed Avant: Close all browsers then go to Control Panel >> Internet Options >> Advanced >> Reset

What do I lose if I perform a reset other than disablong some add-ons. What happens, for instance, to Robo Form?

Is browsing always slow in Internet Explorer? Does it frequently stop responding (hang), or stop working (crash)? Do you receive error messages that indicate that Internet Explorer has "encountered a problem and needs to close"? Or that a Visual C++ "runtime error" has occurred in Iexplore.exe?

If so, then you might want to try resetting Internet Explorer. When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ons and customizations are deleted, and you basically start with a fresh version of Internet Explorer.

...

The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature restores the following items to their default settings:

* Home pages
* Search scopes
* Browsing history
* Form data
* Passwords
* Appearance settings
* Toolbars
* ActiveX controls

Additionally, the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature disables all add-ins. However, it does not remove the add-ins.
Bad Microsoft. Note the wrong wording - addons are not deleted, just disabled in IE. Confuses many.

I've done that on my PC. Whilst there was a reetition of the going to Yahoo behaviour fron Email link and from a web page already loaded, no repetition of that yet, although some web pages loading painfully slow. I'll do the same on my laptop and monotor during the day and report back, hopefully with a successful outcome.
Thanks for the help.

Did a Reset of IE8 on both my PC and laptop and since (and I've ben using both off and on all day) the links now work properly from both Outlook and websites and browsing has increased significantly.
Thank you so much.
There is an issue remaining which I hoped this might resolve but hasn't. The only Add-on I had enabled on AB was RoboForm. I used to use the Googlr Toolbar and still would like to. However, although RobForm is shown as enabled under Tools, AB Options, it shows under View, Toolbars, but is not checked and works whether checked or not. When I enable Google toolbar and the Toolbar Helper and Notifier BHO, Google Toolbar apperas under View, Toolbars but checking it has no effect. But when I check RoboForm the Google Toolbar appears but when I do a search it behaves erratically and when typing a search or a post like this the cursor freezes. I've uninstalled both RoboForm and the Google Toolbar and reinstalled but it makes no difference. They both work normally in IE. Any ideas?

There is an issue with the latest release of Google ToolBar. Google released an update to their toolbar which made it incompatible with Avant. Until either one or the other is modified to work you can try a workaround.

I'm not sure about RoboForm - I've heard mixed views on it.

Unfortunately, I do not use either. Hopefully another user may help.

I spoke too soon. Everything was ok until I tried to enable Google toolbar etc. Having gone back to just RoboForm, my links from Outlook are playing up again. Going to Yahoo Search - why? So I'm going to reset IE again and then leave Google alone!
