I doubt that ICS is causing the problem with the start-up, thats probably
However, to disable ICS, open Control Panel, Network Connections, right
click your internet connection, select properties, go to the advanced tab,
and untick Share Connection (I'm not sat at my XP machine at the moment, so
the exact wording may be wrong). Click OK a few times. You'll get a warning
that some settings have been changed and they will be applied next time the
connection is started. Just disconnect your internet connection, and restart
it. Hey presto, your daughter is in bed!
