Hi, whenever i start up my internet connection,firefox or ie, after booting up i usually have a five minute wait before i can do anything with my system. I have had my hijackthis log checked with nothing to report. This has been happening for a while now for no obvious reason.My system is spy free as i use and update the usual stuff ,adaware se, s&d, zonealarm,avg,spyblaster,etc... Tesco BB with a speedtouch modem ,different modems have the same problem,even if i use a dialup account. Any ideas ???
