Update: I have actually timed the startup of kde apps and it takes a 
minute pretty much exactly from the moment I click on them. For the 
response to the above reply:

# vim /etc/hosts               Snapafun

Once the app/program starts I do not seem to have a problem. It is just 
getting things started.
I have used mcc to 'stopped' all net stuff and anything else I'm not 
using at present. Still no joy so I suspect I'm running something I 
don't know how to find. < ps aux > didn't enlighten me any then maybe 
I'm not looking at the right thing.

Any further ideas?



Big or small, a challenge requires the same commitment to resolve.
