While surfing the internet my computer locks up and can do nothing till I press reset button to reboot. I always notice that the two computer icons on the bottom right of the screen are shinning bright blue together whenever this freeze happens.

About a month ago I installed a Netgear router but about 2 weeks ago I unplugged it because I felt it was slower & I hadn't yet got my 2nd computer to make use of the wireless router. I have no idea whether this has any effect on my computer freezing up now.

I have Verizon DSL that always worked fine prior to this problem. Any idea what might be causing the freeze would be greatly appreciated!
