Hello all. I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this problem. In the last week my PC was having problems loading - it would hang at the Windows 7 Welcome screen. Basically, I narrowed the problem down to ESET Smart Security having somehow corrupted itself. So, I did an uninstall and reinstall of the program. The Windows 7 loading problems have resolved, but now it takes about 5 minutes for my Local Area Network to be detected and load. I have the latest network adapter driver installed ( I use a broadband modem wired directly via cable ) and BIOS settings haven't been disabled. Any advice on settings within Smart Security that may be responsible for this situation ?
