Bad Start Up

started two months ago, upon start up when connected to the internet I get a round replacement of the world instead of the normal apple icon flashing and and it stalls loading up? I need to shut down, disconnect, restart and before the apple icon appears there is a flash of a question mark behind the apple. I than reconnect and all works going forward. ??????
I would like to rid my system of this bad mojo.???????

This Might Help


See "Mac OS: Flashing Globe When Computer Turns On".

This is happening because Network Disk is selected in the Startup Disk control panel and no NetBoot servers are available.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

1. Open the Startup Disk control panel.
2. Select the appropriate startup disk icon.
3. Close the Startup Disk control panel.
4. Restart the computer.

It's helped others. It might help you.
