Go to Network neighborhood see if there is a duplicate...if there is delete one of them

If you are using MSN look for folder called subscriptions delete all duplicates

you can go to start find files or folders and type in subscription to check for it
cen,
(1) One possibility: - The cookie to your ISP has some problem.
(2) Another one: - The password caching file has some problem.

For (1), go to the C:\Windows\Cookies\, try to identify the cookies name for your ISP/net. Delete them. Reconnect on line and inspect the effect. You may have a longer time or re-entering username and password again as the first time logon in order to recreate the cookie.

For (2), go to the C:\Windows\, try to identify the password caching file name "*.pwl". For example, "computer-name.pwl" and "Rna.pwl".  Delete them. Restart the computer again. You may have to re-enter all the passwords for all usernames again as the first time logon in order to recreate the password caching file.
Reconnect on line and inspect the effect.

See if this can be improved and let me know how you made out.   pslh

CEN, how are you logging on to the Internet? Via private ISP, Yahoo, AOL, MSN?

Ken, open regedit and drill down to these keys and look for duplicate key entries and drill all the way down. Be careful to go through them carefully. These are the keys that govern your logon.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\InternetAccountManager\Accounts


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\OMIAccountManager\Accounts


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WindowsMessagingSubsystem\Profiles\<your username>

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Protected StorageSystem\

Sorry Ken, I hit the submit button be accident. The last key above should read:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Protected StorageSystemProvider\<your username>


HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\RemoteAccess

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\RemoteAccess\Addresses


HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\RemoteAccess\Profile\<your ISP>


HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\InternetAccountManager\Accounts\


HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\OMI Account Manager\Accounts


HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\<your username>\99a6e8d...etc

If you find no duplicates and you have checked this very carefully, then there may be another way to correct this, but it is the long way around.

Mine does it twice, too.  In fact, every installation of dialup networking appears to do the same thing.  DUN is just VERY slow.

I used Trumpet Winsock for a while, and it appears to be noticeably faster.

Also, you might want to install pwledit (it's on the W95 distribution CDROM) and TAKE OUT all dialup networking passwords from your .pwl file.

If, as most people, you run your computer without forcing user login at boot time, then the DUN passwords should NOT be in the .pwl file, and if they are, they can make DUN slow or hang (do you have to hit "escape" after it logs in to the ISP??  If so, that's why...).
