Thanx for the link i have alreay tried that the roblem im having is a lot of the suggestion all relate to win/xp but i cant reall find help for windows vista which i'm really new to.

Ive had a look elsewhere.But cannot find anything.I don't suppose that you can do an sfc /scannow on Vista.You may need the Vista disc to run it.

More information required otherwise it's `needle in haystack`.
How long have you had the problem, did it start after you installed some new software, what anti-virus/spyware/firewall do you use...

Hi sorry for the delay on getting bk to yous all, i use avg/adware and spybot amd fo my firewall i use zonealarm, i just think the problem started when about two weeks after i got the pc, i dont really remember installing anything new except limewire a p2p file sharing program but i have uninstalled that since then and the problem is still there.
I dont really think it was limewire cause i think the problem occured a couple of days after i had been using limewire.
I'm sorry i cant give any more info but i really cant think of anything else i have done to cause this.
