Hello all,

I've seen that in a physical PC with windows XP the Internet Explorer starts going slow after starting up one virtual machine.

Any idea on what can be happening here?

Any other program works perfectly, word starts in a breath, excel, ... it is only a matter in the Internet Explorer that seems to be slow...

Any idea? :confused:

Extra information: if I disconnect the network card in the virtual machine, then the IE starts working perfectly again...

How about other Web browsers? And, hey, who is using IE?

I truly don't want (at least would like to avoid) having to explain how another browser works to our secretaries... ^^¡

What is "disconnect the network card in the virtual machine"? The network card is hardware, not virtual. Do you mean you removed it from hardware configuration of the virtual machine or what?

Meanwhile the vmware machine is running you can disconnect the physical network card from the virtual machine (it is like if you would disconnect the ethernet cable from the computer).

Seems to be a problem of the network, not a problem of memory or CPU.
Do you get the same behavior with any type of virtual network (hostonly, nat, bridged)?
How long does it take to resolve a name to an IP address? Does a manual configuration of the DNS servers help?
