Network init locks up hard drive

    My wireless connection takes an unusually long time to initialise, during
    which other applications appear unable to read from the hard drive. The drive
    isn't grinding most of the time, but any program launches in progress will
    freeze up until the moment the networking tray icon starts responding (before
    the load is complete clicking the icon does nothing at first but later brings
    up a correctly-sized, but empty, info box), at which point everything returns
    to normal. This happens on each boot.

    I've tweaked my services before now, but even booting normally through
    MSCONFIG doesn't help. My hardware is Intel Wireless 3945ABG.
