When you start your Windows XP, it automatically read the IP address on your network and this can block your PC for a while. To solve this problem, you have two options:
Disable all your network cards before turning off the PC and then reactivate if necessary. To do this:
Go to Control Panel> Network Connection
Right click on your active network adapter> Disable
Disable the reading of the IP address when booting the PC. This requires a modification of the Registry:
Backup your registry database if necessary.
Open the Registry Editor
Locate the key:
Double click DWORD Value SyncForegroundPolicy
and set it to 0
