Do you have a speedtouch Adsl modem ?

If you have the Speedtouch Modem,it looks like its related to the Dr Speedtouch diagnostics software and is thought to be safe.
Maybe reinstalling the software will cure this problem.
You could use this click here to clean your registry first to see if this helps you problem.

This is all assuming that you use a speedtouch BB modem.
