When I'm surfing the net and come back to the desktop screen to disconnect the internet my PC Freezes for 55 seconds, the clock stops and I cannot do anything, the only thing that works is the mouse, I'm still connected to the internet, after 55 seconds I can come off the net.I cannot select any programmes at all during the 55 seconds.
I'm running Win xp Home and Outlook Express 6.

After 55 seconds everything works fine again.

When I'm not on line everything works fine.

I can remember about 5 years ago deleting something and fixing this problem but I have forgotton what I had to delete.
Perhaps you can help me

Thanks

I have exactly the same problem - also running XP Home and Outlook Express 6. Am on Broadband and do regular and in-depth malware scans etc. Have similar freeze delay (sometimes longer) but this does not seem to happen every time I disconnect from the internet. Would love to find a fix for this as 55 seconds can seem like an eternity some times!!

I wouldnt put this on the net, with no Service pack installed

Run HJT again, tick these then tick fix checked

Close browser/s.

These are safe but dont have to be in startup

Or use ccleaner and delete their entries under tools/startup.

Run this manually

Dont know what this is doing in startup

O4 - .DEFAULT User Startup: AutoPlay.exe (User 'Default user')

Uninstall ALL versions of Java, link is in my sig, under here

I would install SP1, or 2. Or wait for SP3 to come out.

I wouldnt run so many antispyware programs. Uninstall Ad-aware, PC tools, or counterspy.

Thanks Speedy - will do as suggested but don't think this will fix the problem (we shall see). You suggest uninstalling ALL versions of Java but the links in your sig in relation to Java seem to be for downloading and installing Java. Do I need to install an updated version of Java or am I looking at the wrong link?

Cheers

Speedy Gonzales
28-02-2008, 08:29 AM
Thats what I mean, you have to uninstall all versions of Java, and install the latest version. Under the here link

SP1, 2 or 3 will be better than no SP at all.

If you have a SIS based mobo this can also lag your system, and things stop and start all the time.

I had one, in the end I biffed it and got another

I'm on dialup but thats not the problem, I can be surfing eg on Trademe and close the internet connection all keeps working, its when I close Trademe and come back to the desktop screen that all freezes.
I have run malware,Antivirus,adware and nothing changes.
There was a fix for this problem about 5 years ago but I cannot recall what we dids to fix it.
I had to totally rebuild my programmes and this is the outcome
Thanks

Looks ok to me but you can tick these entries then tick fix checked

Close browser/s.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background

O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

INCD could be the prob, it does cause probs

And SP2 might fix the prob as well.

And if youre using IE 6 for browsing, I would update it with the IE6 patches, or IE 7.

If you havent installed any updates

I would use something better than Windows Messenger.
