I'm having problems playing computer games on my computer, which in turn make my computer lag horribly and I'm forced to restart. It is a laptop that was purchased over the summer so it isn't old or anything. When I used to play Counterstrike, within 10 minutes or so it would all of a sudden 'lag' to the point where I couldn't play and couldn't do anything on my computer. There was an error message that said " NET_SendPacket ERROR: NO ERROR" . I always had to restart my computer. In the past few days though, when I try to play CS it does the same thing where it 'lags' and I can't even move my mouse around the screen once I exit it so I have to restart. Since I couldn't play CS I tried Starcraft and the same thing happened wiht the not being able to move mouse and everything. These past few days though, the error message doesn't appear. I have no clue why this is all happening. Any suggestions would be appreciated and I can provide any more info that would help. Thanks in advance for checking this out! -Dan

start > control pannel> administrative tools > services

look for windows messenger service, stop it and set it to manual.
