I have 2 computers at home using a cable modem. The modem is connected to a PC and then the other PC is networked. The problem is with the the main PCconnected to the modem. It is very strange.
Over the past week the Explorer (6.0) and Outlook have worked fine. After about 3 hours, sometimes a little later the main PC just trips out and disconnects access to the modem. I get rejection messages and have to reboot.
What is strange is that my other PC connected via a network keeps working through the network and I can use Explorer without a problem.
What confuses me is that it is not just Explorer but also Outlook and it only is a problem with the main PC. What also confused me last night is that the system triped again without outlook or explorer being loaded. Now I am really lost.
I have recently use a trialware version of Norton that I think must be the problem. The software also included adware and spy options and some files were deleted.
Since this I have downloaded Spybot and this works much better, has improved system performance but the problem still remains.
I hope someone can help
