    Hi

    Please give more inputs.

    are you login into xp machine as a domain user or local user. if domain user is there is any startup script or logon script applied for that user?. Have you checked startup programs in "msconfig"
    Regards,

      I can't understand why this is even an issue... why would you possibly need the icon 30 seconds earlier? What are you going to do with that icon within that 30 seconds?

        Is it specifically the network icons that load slowly in the system tray, or all icons?

            That only the network icons which load slowly , the others (eg; av) are ok .

                cuz in the past i didnt have such a problem . and i dont know a reasonable reason to wait for 30 seconds for nic icon to load !!!

                  Do you actually need them there???

                  In the nic properties you could just deselect 'show icon in notification area when connected' checkbox.

                      Update the NIC drivers, disable AV and all other startup programs and see if it still happens.

                        Ok fair enough.

                        But if u don't see anything then you would know all is well. It would only show if there was a problem due to the other checkbox in the nic properties

                          Does that icon really tell you all that much though, other than whether there is a link? You'll get much more useful information from ipconfig.

                              Then really all that icon serves to tell you is that your network cable is still connected at both ends, which isn't especially useful. Pull the network cable out and the icon reappears to tell you it's not connected.
