Windows 7: Computer hangs for over 1 minute when booting

If unplugging the OD doesn't help, then how about updating or rolling back the ATI Display driver.

Have also resolved issues by uninstalling or removing from startup the ATI software suite, which is unneeded except for driver unless you are overclocking or have special settings within it.

After that I'd check ndproxy which is LAN, by turning off, updating, rolling back your LAN.

Internet Explorer hangs for a minute or so
After setting up Windows 7 on a newly formatted HDD, I installed Norton IS 2010, and Office 2007. Somehow it seems that IE wants to hang for about 30-45 sec up to a minute for no apparent reason - no busy circle or anything. I cannot find a reason why. Any ideas? James
