I had been using the latest ESS version 5 series on my Win 7x64 machine. Worked perfect!!!!! I let version 6 go through many updates, and finally I said time to upgrade to version 6. The UPGRADE went terrible. It told me to reboot, and the installation would continue. I would get half an installation, half the program running, just a wild mess. Finally I did the special uninstall tool. Did a fresh ESS 6 install and got it working. BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT BIG NEW PROBLEM now. Now after my machine boots, the internet is delayed. Startup programs aren't getting the internet they need. Ever after everything is booted up, it takes a couple minutes for the internet to be active. Never NEVER a problem like this with version 5. What is going on? Is there some option I can change? It is such a nuisance, and I hope I do NOT HEAR that it's a new safety feature. My machine is very fast, an I7 with 8GB and a SSD drive. Speed is NOT the issue either. Please help.
