Internet connection keeps terminating`

When I Connect to the internet my connection gets terminated almost immediately. I think I have a virus on my machine, can anyone advise me on what to do. Thanks.

What operating system are you using? are you getting any messages? what ISP etc.

1. Get any kind of onscreen message?

2. Have anti-virus software installed?

The obvious answer is to run an Anti Virus check on the machine.
