network connections freeze

  dontaskme 12:15 14 Oct 03

When i start up my laptop running xp pro, it loads up then freezes for a minute or so and then the network connections appear. only task manager loads during the first few minutes.

The laptop is only a couple of months old and used to load up quickly.

I thought it might be because there are a lot of startup items, but looking at the performance, it uses 0 or 1% and little memory.

I shouldn't have to wait 5 minutes to use it though (when it was closer to 30 seconds a few weeks ago). 5 minutes is a long time on batteries.
