    Hello,

    i have winxp pro and i know that they are no virus or antispyware issues, i
    also believer ( though may be mistaken) that i have the minimum services
    running on my laptop. i have an IBM T40 laptop with 512mb ram and 1.6ghz
    pentium m.

    when i try logging on my laptop while away from my office the computer takes
    over 3 minute to load, mainly waiting on the "preparing network connection"
    message before the option to login occurs.

    Anyone have any ideas? or had this problem before?

    Cheers

    Graham

    Hello,

    i figured it out aftering downloading bootvis the delay was due to the
    system searching for the dns server. i just set the dns server ( as opposed
    to it being automatically assigned) and it was fine.

    however i do seem to have a problem with this account not saving the
    changes!!
