For some reason if I try to connect to the internet via dial-up on my desktop computer, my entire system freezes and I have to reboot. It just will not let me connect to the internet anymore.

Any ideas?? :tazz:

Hmm, well, you could try scanning for spyware. Have you ran Ad-aware and Spybot Search and Destroy? If not, try downloading, updating, and scanning with them. You may have to download from a PC that can connect to the net and then, burn the installer to a Data disk, and just put the CD in the CD-Rom drive and drag the installer over to the PC, then install, and scan. See if you pick anything up,

Post back with how that goes. :tazz:

I've run both of those problems and Norton today with no luck. This is frustrating!
