Good afternoon –

This is my first post and I thank you in advance for your assistance. I have an issue that continues to haunt my PC. I have a Window XP Home PC that includes Mcafee virus-scan. I access the internet via a DSL line which is always on. I have set the PC up so that my “Internet Connection” and “Local Area Connection” icons appear on the tray.

When I turn on my PC in the morning, it boots up and the Mcafee shield flashes on my screen. After a moment the “Local Area Connection” icon appears. If I wait another minute or so for the PC to fully boot up and then click internet explorer, nothing happens, or I get a painfully slow (2+ minutes) connection to my homepage.

If I then shut down and restart my PC 2xs, during the 3rd boot-up the “Internet Connection” icon appears and I can launch IE. Everything then runs fine & fast.

I have defragged & error checked my drive, run CCLeaner, run Registry Mechanic, upgraded from IE 6 to IE 7, and re-imaged my harddrive and reinstalled all my software. The problem remains.

Any ideas?

Thanks – Kurt Hansen
