I have a Gateway MP7808 laptop running Windows XP SP3. My current issues involves the wireless connection icon in the system tray. When I boot up the computer, the icon will always take about 2 minutes to display...everything else in the tray loads just fine. I remember that this icon used to be the first one up, and now it loads very slowly. Additionally, if I try tp open up the "Network Connections" window from the Control Panel, it will take an equally long time to load. Only after a few minutes from boot-up will the icon appear or the Network Connections window display information. I can, however, access the Internet immediately upon startup, which means my computer is connecting to the wireless network just fine...the icon and Network Connections window are simply slow.

I currently have AVG Anti-Virus and its system tray icon installed; I tried uninstalling AVG, but this did not help. The only other icon I have in the tray is that for Microsoft ActiveSync.

I am sorry that I cannot remember exactly when this problem started occurring, so I have no idea what may have prompted it.

Thank you for any help you can give!

P.S. Microsoft, so far, has been unable to solve this issue. I tried updating the drivers for my Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection, but this did not help.
