I have ntl broadband and recently downloaded the windows xp service pac 2. Since this download i have had continuous problems with my connection.
sometimes my internet connection fails and now my email keeps trying to log on to ntl freedom and asking for my password etc...
I no longer use ntl freedom as i have broadband connection. Any ideas. I have run a virus scan and my system is clear,

Hi, System restore. Revert back to a restore point before you added SP2 and see if that cures your problem Cheers, Bill
