BT Broadband problems

  Rickyc88 14:05 12 Apr 2004

everytime i connect to BT broadband, my taskbar locks up and nothing would load. after about 10 -15 mins things return to normal and all the applications have have pressed before loads. i have also notice that after this period, icons in the taskbar disappears even though they were there before the taskbar locked up.

any solutions would be welcome! thks

Im sure i posted to this and it went funny double posts and all,if you have xp look in the event viewer for errors may say shell stopped and was restarted not a lot you can do only wait for it to restart,you may find drwatson.exe running in the task manager when it locks up if you end this it should start back quicker if you have the BT help running at start try stopping this doesnt do a lot and may cause probs and can be started manually if needed.You could also try reinstalling the drivers again see if that helps and its not uncommon for icon to disapear after the restart.

If you have the box ticked to start IE when connected in the dial up part untick it.
