Kind of weird what is happening really!

My computer and internet seem to be working fine, then for the last few days, the internet will just stop working. It won't slow down, nothing strange happens on the screen that I can see, but all of the sudden my internet drops.

The weird thing is that the only thing that fixes it is rebooting the computer. I've tried hard rebooting and powercycling the modem, but that doesn't do it. Which is why I think there's something screwy going on with the computer? So I decided to come get the experts help again! Only real changes I've made in the last few days are installing SP 3 and windows messenger and any required updates from Microsoft.

Oh! Also, sometimes when I would pull the power to my modem just to boost my speed, I would get what reminded me of the sasser or blaster virus - that my computer was shutting down in 60 seconds. Any idea why it would do that just from having a cable disconnected?

Thanks as always! <hugs>

Hello, Sarah... I gotta suggest something good to get hold of those hugs... I'm not thinking it is malware [your log is clean...] but more firewall or modem settings related. AVG AS is hot onto Sasser/Blaster worms.
All this happened AFTER loading SP3? You might try uninstalling your Nvidia Network Access Manager [it is the UI for network settings and the NV firewall] in CP, Add/Rmv Pgms.
Of course, you may be one of the unlucky few who contracted problems with SP3...
