Ive googled this but there seem hundreds of explanations as to why this problem persists,many of which relate to the anti virus programme being enabled in start up,i have disabled mine,Panda anti virus, but thats not made any difference,i would be grateful for some help here,the problem arose a few months back and I haven't been able to solve it
You've messed up you're network somehow and the PC is searching for it.
As I've just done ~ I've gone and lost the lot, including my NAS Drive which had dropped off the network ~ Solution is above my pay grade. So once I've tried a couple of things. I shall be asking questions ~ sometime tomorrow!
While this is happening is there any flashing lights on your superhub. Only the bottom light should be showing.
Are you connected by ethernet or wireless.
If your problem continues get back on to VM and tell them you want an Engineer out as you are fed up having this problem. Also to high a signal or to low a signal coming in will also affect the signal. Hence Engineer to check it out.
If you have not got Malwarebytes I would download and run that just to be on the safe side and see if it finds any problems.
That should give you things to try till someone can come up with better information.
Not that it matters that much but you can go into your Network and internet settings write them down when the system is working properly then remove the automatic settings and add them manually. That way they will not change.
Now just something to try . Turn off your computer then use the switch on the back of it to turn the power off. Hold the start button in for 30 seconds then switch the power back on. Should have said it will run temporary once you have switched it on wait for that to stop first before switching it on properly.
Not saying it will fix the problem but worth a try. I am also with VM and my computer would not start without getting a black screen all of the time. That fixed that problem for me.
