It's happening on Amazon and the Daily Mail page - I'm guessing it's cos they've all got stupid adverts that require masses of memory. I want to stop downloading them as it's making waiting for the web pages to load an arse.

Clicking the stop in the toolbar doesn't help as it then takes ages to stop it anyway.

It has only started happening this week but it's making it annoyinggly slow.

It's not happening on mumsnet wink

Glad it is not happening on MN. Have you ever tried other browsers (such as Firefox or Opera) to see if they load those particular sites as slowly (there are nuilt in pop-up blockers and add-ons to prevent other items, if needed).

www.getfirefox.com

www.opera.com

Please try getting one or both, to compare speed-wise with MSIE.
