The PC boots up to desktop just fine but i can't launch any programs that use internet for the first minute after i can see desktop. The network icon with the blue circle also freezes, but if I wait about a minute, it will unfreeze when Steam is launched.
I have just done a fresh install, no overclock, no unnecessary things plugged in, my ssd has the latest firmware. I have windows 7 64-bit installed on a Intel 520 Series 240GB SSD, and have a spare 2TB wd green.
ANY help is much appreciated!!! This issue has been driving me up the wall for a long time!
(forgot to mention i also have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter, no luck)
It dosen't happen EVERY time, but pretty often)
