Computer freezing when browsing internet.

I`ve recently done a clean install of Xp Home sp1 but since then have had a problem with the system freezing when connected to the internet (using dial up connection).

The only programmes which startup with the computer are systemworks 2003 pro (which shows up no viruses) and I have the google toolbar installed in Internet Explorer.

I dont know if its my imagination but it seems to be happening more frequently.

The only thing I can do when the system freezes is to do a hard reboot

Any ideas before I reinstall everything again ?

Tried the clearing of files and cookies with no effect.

BBez - No I`m not getting any error messages at all the screen just freezes completely (and stays like that if I leave it).

Loads of room on drive and defrag every few weeks - I am wondering if the modem might be the culprit. Don`t you just love PC`s :-)
