hey guys, pls help me out here. wheneva i connect to da net, no progs run in winxp. the comp doesnt hang, cuz i can access the start panel, my computer etc. but if i try running any prog such as my browser (opera , firefox), msn messenger, or any other program for that matter, nothing opens up. nothing just happens. even the task manager doesnt start up by pressing ctrl-alt-del. the progs only start after 15-20 mins, and then all runs fine. even disconnecting does not help. can any1 help me out? this is gettin really irritating!!!!!
