Hi, For the last week i have been having an odd problem.

My PC boots fine (via SSD) but as soon as it passes the login screen and brings me to the desktop, the network connection icon has a circle going around it for about 30 seconds. Except the circle isnt moving, or rotating as if it's frozen and when i click on it to go into the network and sharing settings, it hangs. While this happens i can access anything else fine except internet based apps. Once it connects, everything is normal.

I use a Netgear Power line Adapter and have been for years, and have never had a problem with it.
I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit.

Thanks

I've been having the same problem, can't figure out what the hell is going on... It's also preventing EVGA Precision X from loading... Precision X does not load, until the network icon finally shows a normal connection.
