Another thing, the way it used to work was that when i logged inside windows i wouldnt have internet access for a couple of seconds,right now after the long login delay i have internet access right of the bat, what i think is happening is that windows is looking for the domain after i input my password when it doesnt find it it logs in and uses the alternate ip config, but i liked the old way better since i could go and load other programs and stuff instantly.
From what i have researched, i noticed that there are a lot of diferent problems that point to that same file, from people that cant see the icons to people that have 70 second wait time after they input the login password.
I have a laptop, at work there is a domain and i have a small network at home. So what i did was i configured my laptop for my works domain and configured an alternate ip configuration for when im home. Resently i had to reformat my computer and after that i installed windows xp pro SP1 installed all the updates(except SP2) and i THINK my config is exactly the same as before but i have a 68 second delay at start up IF my network cable is conected when i input my password(at home, theres no problem at work).
In other words, if I boot my computer without any network access at all(no network cable in my network card) my computer boots in a total of 21 seconds, with a cable it takes around 1:20 minutes.
Any help would be kindly appreciated.
PS: Please dont tell me about Msconfig or services.msc, or ad-aware or spybot or a vires scan since those are things i have under controll.
