I had to reformat my hard drive and re-installed win xp. Now I can get on the internet, but 4-5 times a day once I try to get back on it won't connect, but once I reboot the machine will connect fine. Running DSL btw. All my lights on the modem are green, even when I can't connect, just goes to looking for site, then gives me the "can't connect" screen.

Thanks
Phil

OK, I did that, but its still doing it. Seems like it does it when I log off and then log back on.

One more thing, I thought it might have something to do with the different user profiles I set up, but now every time I go to delete the user accounts, it stops responding.

When you can't connect, do this:

For 98 or ME, Start, Run, COMMAND to open a DOS window:
--- or ---
For 2K or XP, Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

Hmm... All seems well there, perhaps you're dealing with spyware/malware? Have you done a full virus scan and run an updated spyware scanner?

If so, how about posting a HijackThis log.

Yeah, ran both scans, didn't find anything. I just reformatted the drive also, only does it once I log off the net.

Once I reboot can log back onto the internt, but once I close out the internet, it will not allow me to go back. Does happen all the time though. Sometimes, I can get right back on. Then once it has sit with no activity for awhile, it will not go back on until I reboot the system again.

How do you "close out the Internet". Do you mean closing Internet Explorer? Have you looked in the event log when you can't connect to see if any errors are logged?

Yeah, close IE or Mozilla. Closed it out last night and was able to log right back on, but then got up this morning and had to reboot the system before I could get back on.
