Differences between IE in XP and IE in windows 7 X64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an issue with a website, it seems that i can't access the site with IE8 on windows 7 x64 but using IE8 on Windows XP SP3 works fine.. I have done this with all updates on both machines, and no updates on either machine, aside from IE8 and the pre-reqs on the XP system..

    On the 7 system it takes about 14min to load the page, and eventually will come up.. The debug info shows that there is roughly 307.97seconds to load the page on the windows 7 machine, but on the XP machine it is 14ms. Can anyone tell me what the key differences are between windows 7 in IE and windows XP in the same version of IE.

    Both machines are on the same network.

    The windows 7 machine is 16GB of ram, with a I7 processor..

    The XP machine is 790MHZ and 2GB of memory..

    Thoughts?

  • Hi,

    Could you please share the address of the website with us to test this issue in our machine? In Windows 7 IE 8, I suggest you disable add-ons (Tools\Manage add-ons), or clear IE cache\browser history, or try compatibility mode, then test the website again.

    Regards

  • NOTE: I have tried FF version 32, and on Ubuntu and XP it loads without an issue.. But on 7 same issue.. Same network, same subnet, no group policy setup in workgroup, no AV on anything for the testing purposes..
