I have Windows XP Professional installed on my desktop. Utilities I have installed are Advance System Care by IObit and Quickheal Total Security Anti- Virus. Other systems being normal I have been experiencing extreme frustration with Internet Explorer 8. It runs very, very slowly and tends to hang or freeze midway through a browsing session; I have to force shut the session and start all over again. I need this browser as certain old programmes are supported only by this browser, especially online trading and banking transactions which require the use of a virtual keyboard. Moreover, Internet Explorer is the only browser whereby I can save files in .mht format.
Can anyone help me by offering a solution?
P.S. I have no problems with Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. I also regularly clean up my system and delete junk/temp files and defrag the drives every month.
