I currently have an college that have a pretty uniqe problem.
Every time he tries to logon to a website (ex. yahoo mail, Google mail etc) the authentication takes about 1-2mins, i tried it on IE8 and Firefox (Both of the latest release fully updated) and i have the same problem.

Im pretty sure the problem aint browser related but windows xp related.

Info:
OS = Windows XP pro SP3 (All updated)
IE8
Firefox 3.6.8
Anti virus = SEP 11.0.6


Anyone got a clue what this can be?
Dont want to have problems with your computer?
Solution : install a good free anti virus, anti spyware & and stay away from misleading applications. Update your OS and vital programs as often as you can, to shut down those open security holes.
Stay away from shareware and trailware applications, avoid installing browser addins and toolbars. Read up on things before trying new applications.

So your friend (I say this because I'm not sure who you were talking about in your post) tries to log in through a college network?

Specific website problems...often have to do with damaged cookies.

You can try deleting the current ones and then revisiting the websites for new ones.
