When I connect to my ISP it starts to dial, connects, then within seconds shuts down and restarts scandisc. This happens intermittantly not everey time. Can anyone help. Mike

Has this just started happening ?
If so have you recently installed a program ?
If so then this could have overwritten a windows system file with its own version.I would first of all clear out any useless clutter , do a complete virus scan , disk clean up , scandisk , and a defrag. When all this is done see if the problems still exists.Also see if these knowledge base articles help on microsoft site , goto click here and try articles 193011 and 190554 let us know how you go !
