    I use a T-Mobile internet dongle (not very cracking, but cant afford to have a 'REAL' internet connection just yet!!)

    PC works fine until i go online, then everything freezes & i have to switch off using On/Off button on my tower!!?
    This problem has only started happening since last week, & i cant think that i've been downloading anything of late...!??
