I'm running WinXP-Pro/WSer.Pk3 & ever since I downloaded my new inernet Security,If I'm downloading anything my PC will crash restart & then I have to redial? Does anyone have any Idea why it would just start doing that?

Which new Internet security package was it? Some are better than others and some are definitely to be avoided, particularly if it offered itself to you online.

I found AVG products worked well for years but in the last few months, I've rather gone off them. There is a 2011 version now. Although it began to slow systems down, I haven't heard of it crashing them apart from update 3092 (I think) which messed up a few systems.

Go to Microsoft's site and download Microsoft Security Essentials. Turn AVG off in all departments and install MSE - see what happens. If the problem persists, AVG isn't at fault and you can bin MSE and revert.
