Switching Users kills my Internet Connection

    I am using Windows Vista Home Premium with 2 users, Mine (Admin) and a second
    one (Standard User). I have a DSL Internet connection that was working just
    fine on my XP computer (same setup), but with Vista (brand new and completely
    different computer), it will only work for the first User Profile.

    It doesn't matter which User Profile I load up first...If I try to switch to
    the other User Profile, the Internet Connection is severely constrained. For
    example, normally it takes only a fraction of a second to download a simple
    text email or load a simple webpage, but after I have switched to the other
    User Profile, it takes minutes to work, if it works at all. This is the same
    if I log off of one User Profile, then log into the other User Profile.

    I have tried this with and without my router and the router does not seem to
    make any difference.

    Any help??

    I'm sorry you're experiencing trouble. Are you still having this
    performance issue?

    I reinstalled Windows Vista and the problem has not yet returned.

    I have my fingers crossed. Certainly not impressed.
