Speedtouch 330 causes system to hang

  kevinjuan 00:06 12 Apr 2005

AMD 3000XP, 512Mb,120GbHD,Win XP home, SP2. When my bb conects(via speedtouch 330) my system hangs. The mouse works, and if I click on desktop icons they go grey, but the applications will not open for 7 minutes. If I disable the modem, everything works immediately. Any help would be appreciated.

appologies if the thread has been previously posted.

I am using one right now. So I would suggest it's something else that's the problem. Got this with BT/NTL Freedom

Try this go to Start\Run type MSCONFIG go to startup tab and remove ticks for SpeedTouch Software and reboot. Now go to Start\Settings\Control Panel\ Double click Networking icon right click on your ISP and drag to quickstart bar and create a shortcut. now try the shortcut

Woodchip. Thanks for the quick response. I am using mine as well, I just have to wait 7 minutes for the computer to start working, then everything is fine.
