Hey Guys,

I have a problem with a particular PC slowing down dramatically as soon as it tries to access the network.

The only way to log in in a sane amount of time is to unplug the network cable, wait for the desktop to load up (usually haveing to run explore.exe myselft because its nots starting straight away) and then plug it in.

If i open up outlook, or IE for example, the pc just locks up..but as soon as i unplug it they all open fine! if the network cable is out, everything opens as expected, when it is in, it locks up!!
I have tried scanning for spyware, viruses, ive check start up items for anything suspicious, renamed the pc, tried a different network port, logged in as a different user, dissconnected network drives, and removed symantec totally for now i case that was an issue...but it wasnt.

Any ideas, because im stumped!?

Thanks in advance
