    As far as i know, more than half of win7 users have this problem - IE and tabs loads slowly, but web pages loads almost great...

    Why don't you use another program for web?

    __________

    Tools -> Manage addons.
    Disable addons that you don't need and takes most of IE startup time ;)

    I don't even know what is it for. I've set it to disable and everything is ok...
