Hi there,
I use my GSM phone as a dialup connection and recently when I connect my system hangs after connecting to the internet, I don't mean runs slow either. It connects and then in 3-5minutes the dialup computers in the taskbar showup and then dissapear but it is still connected...nothing works during that 3-5minutes either, I'll try alt ctrl del to get the task manager up and that even waits until the 3-5minutes is up. I did a bunch of scans for spyware and viruses but they came up with nothing. I'm attatching my hijackthis log and hopefully someone can help me. oh yeah when i log on under another account it doesn't hang it connects like normal and everything runs fine so it's something under just my account. Thanks
Luke

did you try system restore on the bad account...
did you install any software just prior to the problem starting...
