Hi Hugh

Not sure if I can help you, but.

Try deleting all internet cache and cookies, clear history and run a program like adaware. Have a look down the page for a post called 'Essential reading for computer privacy' by Susan B for a more thouragh look at internet cache, etc. Find Fast could be bevering away too.

What time of day do you initially log on and then when you try again? If you hit ctrl+alt+del whats running in the backgound?

Anti virus? fire wall? If you
have either of these it may pay to check their setting. They may be blocking or scanning in the background.
