Processes do not fully load.
I don't know if this is the right section or not for my question (since it isn't really hardware related.)
When I boot up my laptop, it has only 30 processes loaded. 2-5 minutes later, all the rest of them load up. One of them is my network connections, so I have no access to the internet or the local network for a couple minutes after the OS has loaded.
I noticed that when I do a virus/spyware scan, this issue goes away, so it is safe to guess that it is spyware related, but the problem is it keeps recurring.
PS. Please move the topic if it is in the wrong section. Thanks
