Im back having reinstalled everything, loaded and updated Norton, and loaded SP2, with no problems at all, unitl now, maybe...
This certainly is a new one on me... I tries to cgo online about 15 mins ago, and failed. My IOL connection icon just greyed out when I double clicked on it. I couldnt even right click and select open, greyed out too. So I went to Network Connections and discovered that this was running, and apparently connected for 15 hours:
Lan or High Speed Internet 1394 connection
1394 Net Adaptor
I dont even know what this is, I knew it was there but never saw it doing anything before. My phone line was active too, i couldnt make calls, but it was a different sound, I think, than when Im connected to the net normally.
So I disabled 1394, and was able to connect as usual. Then just there now I enabled it, and the connection timer started but I dont know what I was connected to or what it's for. So of course I disabled it again.
Whats going on at all? Dont say Im going to have a huge phone bill....!
