Why does my home folder take ages to open when connected to the internet


My system is:

Debian Testing 2.6.7-1-i386
Gnome 2.6
Asus P3 CUSL2-C m'board with 512ram
56k external modem connection
Firestarter firewall (wizard basic setup)
Spamassassin
ClamAV

When ever I connect to the internet, my home folder and the other desktop icon links, take ages to open, sometimes up to five minutes. Closing them is the same, with the 'force close' box popping up.
When I'm not connected to the internet, there is no problem, they open rapidly.
Without removing anything I already have loaded, I thought that someone may be able to tell me what the cause might be. I think back and perhaps this started happening when I installed Firestarter or ClamAV.
Thanks for any help.

Brilliant, that seems to have fixed it and my system now runs 'perfectly'.
What a wonderful thing it is to be able to use this site to get answers.
Thankyou to all.
