    I seem to have a browser problem in windows XP that's on parallels on my macbook pro. Nothing seems to happen in IE when launched-its gets to about 3-4 green bars and just keeps loading.

    There has been the odd occasion when its loaded okay, but this rarely happens. I also have trouble getting content to load on firefox and safari on XP as well-its very slow.

    I've tried setting everything to default in IE, turning add ons off etc, although its probably a different problem as I have trouble with ff and safari as well.

    I have an internet connection when I look at network connections and local area connection-its running at 1.0Gbps.

    Everything runs fine with the browsers on the mac OSX side, don't know whats happening, can anyone help? thanks

    okay, that's strange. I've just taken out the internet cable so I have no connection and for a second it recognised this in XP on the local area connection (a cross appeared), but then it went back to being connected-even though the cable wasn't plugged in. It also said I had a connection for parallels on the network options on OSX.
