    I have discovered that if I disconnect my DSL from my computer, IE will work, the sidebar will work, and most of the programs will operate correctly. If I connect it into the back of the computer, almost immediately Windows Vista will report a problem and start looking for a solution. IE will also prompt "stopped working" and the sidebar will quit :(. Also most programs that require some type of installer wizard will not open, but shutdown.

    Does anyone have any ideas or know a solution to the problem.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
