I am using ShellExecute in a program and am having some serious speed problems. The program launches the default internet browser and goes to a website. The only problem is that it is taking an inordinate amount of time to do this. After the first call to open the website, the loading time isn't as severe. But it literally takes minutes to launch the browser on my 333mhz box using IE the first time.
P.S. I am opening the website by using the web site address as the file name. However, I have also tried opening IE specifically with the parameter being set as the website's address.
