Slow response to Dial-up Request

After booting up XP Pro I usually connect to a dial-up connection......lately however, when I double click the shortcut (which i have on my quicklaunch taskbar) the taskbar freezes, I cant access the start menu nor the network connections in control panel....It is like this for around one minute untill it finally starts dialing. I have bootvis and I have disabled webclient in msconfig because prior to these changes my boot time was 2+ minutes but now it has returned to a healthy 30-45 secs (this dial-up "lag" was taking place before i made these it hasnt been caused by those).

Any thoughts?

You might try deleting the dial-up connection and creating it new again. Sometimes with the Patches and what-not (taking for granted you've installed all of XP's fixes from M'soft) it will muck with stuff and reinstallation can straighten things out.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
