Ok, Heres the scoop.

I have a user runing Windows XP, SP2. Firewall Disabled.
He has a bunch of apps installed ... none of which run in the
background. It takes him a min of 15 sec to open any program that
deals with the Internet (MS related or not). If we unplug his
connection, everything runs great ... except he has no network and no
Internet.

Any Ideas ? I have run every spyware removal tool known to man (or
woman), we have the latest McAfee Virus definitions (and yes, I have
tried to disable the viruscaner).

Thank you for any help,
Peter

Has any Windows components been removed or added? If that is the case, I had
a similar problem and there was no solution available then except a clean
installation of Windows

Yeah how annoying! Well al clean installation will most probably solve the
problem very much doubt it will be hardware.
