Hi, I've got a modem problem that's driving me batty. About 2 of every 3 times I connect to the internet using dial-up, it essentially freezes my computer. What's weird is that I can open Windows explorer & the start menu, but I cannot run any programs. Once I disconnect or pull the modem line, every thing goes back to normal.
I thought at first that it might be some malware trying to dial out somewhere, but now I'm not so sure, especially after seeing a couple of errors in the modem log. But before I go too much into detail, I thought it would be best to see if you guys know anything right off.
