My internet keeps cutting out!..all the time! - it is driving me insane....especially when tryinging to place an ebay bid(!)....does this with IE and Firefox (as recommend by Vog - all hail VoG!)...However, internet as bad as ever guess that rules that one out....anyone any ideas....could it be mcafee?

Try this,
Tools> internet options> connections> settings> advanced. Remove the 'ticks' from 'disconnect if idle' and 'disconnect when connection may no longer be needed'.

Cheers Chris.

How do you connect to the internet? Who is your ISP?

Hi ISP is Wanadoo....but been through a half hour process over the phone, and cos my little box still has two steady green lights on it, they told me it wasnt a wanadoo problem...but to consider mcafee as a potential problem or ie. i.e. keeps closing with 'encountered a problem'.....loads of times and frequently!
