    so here is my case..

    When i connect to the internet, my computer starts downloading something (i think that it is downloading something because my DSL modem is blinking, same with my router). I am not using any applications or whatsoever that uses the internet.

    i have tried using norton antivirus, pestpatrol, and ad-aware around 3x already. system restore is turned off ofcourse.

    Moreover, when i tried to login to mail.yahoo.com, it gives me an error message saying "The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected)".

    i would really much appreciate your help.
    THANK YOU! :)
