I only have a dial-up connection so when downloading large files, I leave the computer downloading overnight, thus leaving my phone free during the day.
However with my current computer the computer runs for a while and then simply locks up. I come out in the morning and the screen is frozen and unresponsive to the keyboard. I have to reboot up the computer using the reboot button. Doing an all file search shows that at some time previously the computer stopped, for example last night I left the computer running and downloading at 11 pm and the search shows it stopped at approximately 4 am the next morning. On the administrtive tools event viewer fails to show any event occuring at this time for either system, or shows no fault in the system or application.
I have removed all power saving settings, removed the screen saver and removed all possible user TSR programs using task manager and still this happens. Any suggestions or explantions welcome
