Sometimes its OK and I can connect first time other times it can take me 10 - 15 minutes to connect due to the hanging and the problem with trying to close the screen which can atke 3-4 minutes
I have looked at the error log a copy of which is here:-
28 January 2009 Application Hanging Hanging application iexplore,version 7.0.6000.16762, hanging module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hanging address 0x00000000.
28 january 2009 Application n Hang. Fault bucket 1015682910.
Having read a few bloggs on yours and other sites and thought it might have been a malware problem so I carried out the following operations with no solution to the problem.
Ran Regcure, ATF Cleaner, Malwarebytes Anti -Malware, Spybot, AVG Antivirus scan, I even tried to restore my system before the 23 January but was unsuccessful as I kept getting an error message "can,t install this restore point".
The three Windows update were, Office Live Add-in, Samsung Display Syncmaster Magic, T200/T200G (Analog) and Windows Search 4.0 for Windowss XP (KB940157), I have removed the last update as I thought it may have been the cause of the problem.
Thank you in anticipation of your assistance.
