PC freezing for a while after getting online?

  gazmix 16:08 14 Aug 2006

I turn my pc on & when all is on my taskbar & desktop, i double click on Mailwasher that brings my dial-up connection box.
When online & pop recieves all my mail, i go to start to open my browser, but all seems frozen, i try to click on anything & all is frozen.
I wait like 5 mins & then all i clicked on starts, like my AVG or messenger.
When this has recoveed all is ok, just on the initial startup!

Sounds like a Program that's running and not letting you do anything else until it stopped doing what it's doing

It seems when i've retrieved my mail via mailwasher & deleted it etc, all freezes.

I've noticed that bringing up the taskmanager seems to remedy things & all starts working.
