    I use XP Home Edit and FireFox and IE at times.

    Once I am connected to web via Road Runner, all is fine and fast.,

    However, it takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes to connect initially when I
    click the Internet icon. Don't think is normal, is there I way I can speed
    up the initial connect? No other programs are running.

    tks all

    Personally, if everything else is "fine and fast" I would leave it
    alone.

    However, you could make the connection process start automatically at
    start-up.

    Right-click on the connection within the 'Control Panel' > 'Network
    Connections' folder and selecting 'Create Shortcut' - this will place a
    shortcut on your desktop.

    Then move this shortcut to the 'Startup' folder on your 'Start Menu' and
    the connection will start automatically with your desktop...
