Modem connection shuts down PC

I'm running XP Proffesional and as soon as I connect to the internet my PC will restart?? I've uninstalled and reinstalled the modem and even moved it to another slot, but this still continues?

Firstly run your AV then check for Spyware/Malware ...use these,they all come highly recommended and free click here
Use the top 5 in the link at least weekly and updated.Spywareblaster

If the problem persists,post back.

Hope this helps.
