Internet connects slowly

This problem is not serious but it's a little annoying. I've tried different things but nothing seems to work. When I reboot, the icon on the bottom left side which connects to a network takes around three minutes after the computer is fully booted to come on. I've read things on the internet about it but have yet to find a solution. May be someone had the same problem and resolved it, if so I would love to hear about it.

Hi jonathan1. Try cleanbooting (see here, Step 1: Perform a clean boot). Dont troubleshoot it yet and make sure you dont download anything or surf to dodgy sites while you are running in this state because your antivirus will be disabled. Did you notice any difference?
