Laptop Aspire 1312XC Windows XP SP 2. Actions up to now: Have uninstalled the modem driver and reinstalled it. This seemed to solve the problem as first but then it returned and subsequent reinstalls have not been helpfull.

Also what I've been doing of late is running a one of XP's card game programmes (Hearts) after closing browser,but before disconnecting and then closing this programme and then disconnecting and this seeems to prevent the system freezing.

Maybe there is a real solution to this problem. A post for help on a forum got a response from
another Acer user who was having the same problem.
