    I am assuming it's the famous network card pause.

    I just don't turn on my DSL modem, til everything is loaded.

    Flame me if this isn't the problem :D

    Hey, I have the EXACT same problem. I narrowed this down to the sound card. I didn't get any good help from anyone here, not that they didn't try, just none of the ideas fixed the problem. I have two SBLIVE cards, ones a standard and the other is a 5.1. The problem exists on both cards. I've tried various drivers to no avail. If I take the sound card out, it works fine.

    I bet that the windows start sound doesn't happen until after the 5 minutes.. right ;)

    If you come up with a solution let me know. You can find my other posts in here. Just search for Hang or Pause. I posted recently.

    Anyone know if this might be fixed in SP1, or if Microsoft is even aware of it? It happens to me only when I use PPPOE at home with DSL.
