All of a sudden my laptop starting taking 17 minutes to completely start up. Everything appears on the system tray except for the wireless & LAN icons. It takes about 17 minutes for them to appear & In the meantime the computer is hung up. When they finally appear the status says they've been receiving data for 17 mind already. Please help!

Can you give us a little more information about your computer please?

What operating system?
What network cards possibly?
What antivirus program you have?

This will help us to help you.

Thanks,
Techextreme

Intel® PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection
Broadcom 440x 1-/100 Integrated Controller
1394 Net Adapter (not sure what this does, but not one of the ones usually in system tray)
3) McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise & AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.7.0i

A few more questions about your computer and your experiences as of right now.

Did this problem show up right after installing Windows XP Service Pack 3?

Did this problem show up right after installing or updating McAfee Virus Scan?

Thanks,
Techextreme

No, I have had both SP3 and McAfee for awhile. The latest thing I had installed was a new printer and Office 2007 (Outlook, Powerpoint, Excel, Word) but I have since uninstalled them both.

I think my next place to turn would be the McAfee Virtual Technicial located http://mvt.mcafee.com/mvt/en-us/default.html?en-us < -- here.

Sorry about that. Go here https://mysupport.mcafee.com/Eservice/Default.aspx

This will open the McAfee Technical Support Service Portal. On the right of the page there is a heading that says "Self Healing"

Under that is "Run McAfee Virtual Technician". Clicking on that link will open the virtual technician. Follow the instructions from there to have your McAfee product checked for any problems.

Okay I ran the virtual technician and it fixed a link in the registry, but it is still taking ~17 mins for network connections to appear and be used and during that time Windows says I don't have a firewall. Any other ideas?

At this point, the only other thing I can think of would be your TCP/IP stack and Winsock. I'm wondering if something is trying to "install" itself in the middle to "filter" what you're doing on the internet or network-wise during boot-up. My thoughts would be to try resetting both TCP/IP and Winsock on your machine.

Reset TCP/IP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357

Reset Winsock http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811259

Try these and let me and the rest of us here at BC know what turns up.

Good Luck,

Hello

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/233545/not-sure-what-i-have-but-taking-17-minutes-to-load-network-connections-on-startup/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted

OR


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
