ok guys, heres a good one, today i installed Java from their site. once i restarted internet explorer, i realized that when i start ir, open a new tab or hold ctrl and click a link to open a new site, it seems like it takes forever to load, almost like its hanging a little bit. i dont know what to do. i reinstalled 7 the first time it happened thinking it was a virus, but now i know that Java is the problem. No i didnt install it in vista compatibility mode, im running windows 7 build 7100 rc off of microsofts site, fujitsu lifebook t4215. help if somebody else has had the problem please. thanks.
