Lets leave it for the techs to decide whether another format is needed in this case. Regardless, a LL format is probably overkill.

The next person to reply here should be a TT. :whistling:

Edit: This probably belongs in the networking forum as well.

I concure with RuthandTroy. You could be fighting a bad/flakey modem. I also think that you should visit the malware forum and follow their advice. Once you get a clean bill of health there, then we can work on the remaining issues.

I also think you should create an install cd that already has sp2 installed. You can do this by a process called slipstreaming. Please see Paul Thurrott's slipstream guide. Upon installing the os, the first thing you should do is apply all ms critical updates and patches. Do nothing till that is done.

Without sp2 and post sp2 patches your system is very vulnerable to some nasty malware infections.

Let us know the results so we can continue to assist.
