On my computer I have a problem, such that on initiaition of a web browser (IE6 +patches), or even on occassions explorer, the system wiats for 20-30 seconds prior to opening up. After this the browser upload/download speed is fine. However leave it a while or do a send/recieve in Outlook Express then ALL IE browser goes slow again. I have various spyware/AV (adware, spybot, spy sweeper, spam inspector, windows washer, black icve firewall on my system and I dont believe that I have any viruses/trojan horses etc.... can anyone help, since this delay is a big pain. At first I thought that it only affected my ADSL connection, but it seems to be the same if I log my laptop into my work LAN. I think it's something to do with the broadcom adapter in my Dell D600 laptop but cant seem to work out want is going on.
Please help, I'm at my wits end, Many thanks.
