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 ???

Ok, sussed this one myself... hosts file was very large and removing it stops the freezing.
