Is there such a thing as someone that has constant access to your modem for a DSL account or a modem that could give a computer a virus?
I just reinstalled my OS on a newer hard drive because the older one was 5400RPM
But with in 10 mins after setting up my DSL account (EarthLink total access) i got the windows must restart because RPC service terminated unexpectedly and then the timer count down. I wouldn't even think of having a virus with the system so new.

Is this possible?

I have read some other things to do in the service.msc with the RPC but need to know if i could have a bad ISP connection?

you can get a virus as soon as you connect to the internet - i have seen this a few times on a company network after a build before putting all the updates on.....
