Programs and Internet disconnections

  redbarron 15:14 24 Dec 2008


I download software or programs from the Internet via torrents.

When I go to open the program my Internet connection disconnects and reconnects all in a matter of seconds.

It doesn't happen with everything I download.

It doesn't really cause me a problem. I'm just baffled as to why it does it.

Any ideas please.

Operating system is XP Pro.

Kaspersky Internet Security.

If anyone else has any more thoughts on this I would be pleased to hear them.
