When I first switch on my PC it works fine but after a couple of hours my internet starts failing to connect to sites and my email (incredimail) just shows as constantly connecting. I have recently changed ISP but am still having this problem. Any suggestions???

Have you tried a different modem?

What os and pc specs. Also, how much internet traffic to have on the go at any one time. My system can cope quite hapily with up to 20 IE active windows, 2 graphics programs (WMP and Thumbsplus) and two private p2p networks, windows explorer and email.

I normally only have 1 or 2 explorers and my emails open at any time. I have very limited I.T. knowledge so dont know if there are other things running in the background that could be causing it. I have scanned for any virus and ad ware etc. I am using XP on an Emachine 270,1.70 ghz celeron processor. Its about 4 years old. Is it maybe time to buy new PC??
