    Often when I start MS internet explorer it takes up to half a minute until the connection window appears. I am using Windows XP on an AMD 1600+ with 512 MB RAM. Any suggestions how to eliminate this annoying delay? Otherwise the computer is running very fast.
    Thanks for your input.

    Try going to Tools -> Options, connections tab. Click the LAN Settings button and make sure "automatically detect settings" is unchecked.

    Hi Leila,

    thanks for the tip, but I still encounter this problem.
