Yeah i tried the msconfig method of disabling everything and then starting up the computer but it still takes about 2-3 mins to load up the internet connection. When i uninstalled the drivers
. I reinstalled it again but still had the same problems. These drivers are windows 7 64 bit drivers.
It is highly unlikely that it is spyware/virus as i have always had this problem even when formatting the computer.
It could possibly be the drivers as the last time i unistalled it the internet connection loaded up in 10 seconds. But the time before that when i unintalled the drivers it still took 2-3 mins to load up.
