IE8 first page takes ages to load, but then all others load fine

One of my clients recently got a new laptop - I set it up and everything was working well.

This is usually caused by IE's Tools -> Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings -> "Automatically detect settings" being checked. For some reason, figuring out what proxy to use on the network takes forever. Clear the checkbox, and if you have a proxy, type it in below. Otherwise leave the rest of the box unchecked and blank as well. That should get your first page coming up very fast.
