Who is your ISP?

What type of Modem or Router are you using?

Also what is the PC's OS?

Make/model of modem?


Do you already have anti-virus installed or are you using the internet without any current protection?

Does the modem have up-to-date drivers?

Have you cleared the old PC of old crap with click here ?

Could you give us some idea of how long it takes your PC to freeze.

Is it just the AV Download that causes a freeze, or does the PC freeze with whatever you're doing?

If it is just the AV, have you pressed the "Save" Button or the "Run" Button?
