    Ok... here is what happens... when I go to sites like:

    kazaa
    delta.com
    sunsentinel.com
    ajc.com
    etc..

    IT IS CERTAIN SITES 100% OF THE TIME, my internet connection is lost and I can not reconnect until I reboot the machine. It will not manually or auto reconnect until I power off and power back on. It is ALWAYS with those certain sites.

    now, I can leave the machine running for days and no problems, still active internet connection, but once I hit one of those sites... bang.. it is gone.

    Now hotmail.com is acting the same way. Losing the connection everytime I try to access it.

    I don't know why. The Bellsouth.net DSL is active now, no bad connections in the area.

    I have tried downloading every single MS update and it still does this.

    I have run my spybot and antivirus software.



    what else?

    Ok... it is official... .I just lost my ability to browse Hotmail.com without it crashing and needing a reboot.l

    WHAT IS HAPPENING?

    Now, I can use Mozilla and browse these sites. I just lost Hotmail today, I was browsing it fine yesterday...hours at a time.

    I already downloaded the latest version of IE. (already had it thought, just did it to make sure).

    I have just deleted everything in my CaptiveX programs in the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder. Just in case something bad was in there.
