    Stalls for 30 sec when opening new TAB

    I have a Quad processor with Windows 7 - 8 Gig or RAM and Windows 7 stalls ( stops me from doing anything in any of the tabs ) when I open a new tab for 30 seconds or so. It never use to do this. I uninstalled IE 8 and but made no difference. It must be a setting I have wrong.

    Using Norton Internet Security 2010
    Lexmark printer - new
    Google Tool bar and that is all the add ons.

    I have tried this with out the about addons and with no start up and still the same.

    You may see if doing a system restore helps.

    You may also consider posting at or depending on your OS.
