Re: need help ......... [new user here]
1st thing i would check is the startup menu to see what is loading up, click start/run/ type "msconfig" without the quotes/ then click startup tab.
check in the list for anything that relates to connecting
to the internet...example (windows media player ect...)
if you find something in there that's trying to connect that you don't want to, just un-tic the box
next to that item, & reboot.
after your logo diappears keep hitting the f8 key to
bring up the safe mode option menu, scroll up to safe mode without networking.
once it loads up your get a message , click ok...this is normal....now if you have any spyware programs
run them....Adaware ect... after that
go to contol panel/network & connections/internet options/ delete cookies, delete offline cookies.
then click settings...make shure your internet cauche in set to 80mb. in the box.
by default windows has this set to 650mbs...you only need 60 to 80 mbs. for web browsing & downloading.
after that go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/disc defragmenter...click that...empy the pre-fetch folder in the windows folder.
this will do a defrag of the hhd, and make your comp. prog.'s run a little faster.
after that's done...reboot and let windows load up
see if that makes a difference.
