Whenever I use dialup to connect to the internet, there is a huge long pause up to five minutes long when everything is frozen. I can do a ctrl-alt-del twenty times and nothing happens. Finally after a couple minutes twenty instances of Windows Task Manager appear. Then I can close them and things will progress normally. It doesn't matter what number or internet service provider I use--I've tried four different ones. I don't have this trouble with a LAN connection, but when I travel I am limited to dial up. I suspect some spyware or malware, but have searched for all of those. I use Norton's Internet Security firewall, but disable it and nothing changes. Any suggestions? Thanks. My first post....

It can still very much likely be spyware/malware that you cannot detect. You can Start Here. Please be sure to follow all instructions otherwise it will only impair our ability to help you.
