    Click on Start--Run and type in "MSCONFIG" (without quotes)
    go to the startup tab and UNCHECK EVERYTHING!
    click apply and then OK or Close...Say YES to the reboot and when Windows comes back up, try it again!


    Good Luck!

    Maybe some spyware? Download Spybot and run it. Someone the other day who had cable modem had to disconnect his modem due to pings from ISP. I have a firewall so that's no problem.

    Just some suggestions before the others.
