Internet Connection Problems

By Unfold
Apr 2, 2010
  1. Ok, I've been having this problem recently with my internet, I don't know what's wrong, but here is my problem.

    When I try connecting to programs my computer freezes up.

    This happens when: Someone loggs on xfire, my computer just freezes; when I get on ventrilo, my computer freezes; when I try to connect to steam, my computer also freezes. I hope someone has a solution for me.

    Also, I'm using Windows 7.

    Sincerely,
    Jeff

    hmm; first we need some system information {XP/?, Vista/? or Win/7}
    what SP level?

    you should
    1. FIRST verify that the HD is sane ; using Admin, run -> chkdsk /f
    2. verify the configuration
      get the install CD loaded and then run->sfc /scannow
    then begin the 8-step process show here
