    Please help, whenever I start ie at the bottom of the screen I get a message
    "Detecting proxy settings........"
    It does this for about 20 seconds before finally loading up my homepage.

    I'm using win xp home. and am connecting to freeserve's homepage and am on
    freeserve broadband.

    Any help much appreciated as the time seems to be getting longer every time
    I start it.

    Phil.
