Windows 7: Network and Sharing Center Delayed Start

Network and Sharing Center Delayed Start

Hi guys, I recently had a virus which I managed to fully clean. Both Malwarebytes and MSE do not detect anymore threats.

Everything works fine but every time I restart windows it takes a good 3-5 minutes for the 'Network and Sharing Center' icon to "load". Basically it has that circular loading icon hovering over it like it's loading something, and sometimes it has a red cross over it. During this time Firefox won't load and MSE disables real time protection until the network center says I'm connected.

So essentially my windows boot time is now 3-5 mins on an SSD. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

It is quite probable you still have some sort of malware infection. I would recommend you go to the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal forum, read the first post and follow instructions.

Come back here once you get a clean bill of health if you still have problems.
