Hi! Well, I hope someone has heard of this mystery of mine. I'm having problems running the game World of Warcraft. I used to run it on dial up, but now that im on cable a year later... it doesn't seem to like me anymore. Here is my problem. When I load the game, pick my character and finish loading into the online world, the instant I get in and should see my character, my computer freezes. But it doesn't stay frozen. It will freeze for about 5 seconds, unfreeze for maybe a second and a half, then freeze again for 5 seconds... so on and so forth. I can do anything I want while it is unfrozen, but when it freezes, the computer screen locks up, mouse won't move, all your typical freezing symptoms. Eventually I'll lose an internet connection, and I'm forced to restart, in which case it works fine till I try again. I thought it might be my network card, but I have played the game on it before with no problems (i was at the time on windows 98, now I'm on XP). I've got AVG free edition, and my computer seems clean (nothing found). I can play other massive multiplayer online games, such as dark ages of camelot or final fantasy xi, but I am having the hardest time with world of warcraft. I also experienced these freezing fits while using a peer-to-peer downloader to obtain the world of warcraft update patch. If I disabled my peer-to-peer connection, it was fine (slow as a snail however). Any insight to a possible solution would be very helpful, I'm almost to the point of buying a new network card, but seems like waste of money since up til now, mine worked just fine. (I use limewire to download, which I was told was a peer-to-peer connection, and it works just fine) Thanks for the time.
