    I will try anyway the selective startup. How about the case of it hangs when not in use for about 1hour1. Thanks for the suggestion.

Download and run ATF Cleaner from its free , it clears all your temp folders at once , making your virus and spyware programs run better. does not touch any system files and is extremely fast and easy to use. always run it more than once or untill you get a "no files removed" message. I run it everytime i finish browsing..
Make sure you have all the updates your operating system, virus and spyware update programs running will tie up your computer when you are browsing.
Make sure you run Microsofts' malicious software removal tool found in thier update section.
Post your findings here if this doesnt clear it up for you and ill post a few more steps.

    more than likely you have your computer resources tied up and the computer isnt keeping up. if you hit control-alt-delete and open the taskmanager to the processes tab, look at the bottom to see how many processes you have running. windows only requires about 20 processes with your antivirus program included.

    Most ppl use all the default settings when installing a program , which usually sets things like ms office, yahoo, limewire, msn, AOL to start when windows starts. This is ok when you have a SUPER computer , but when your running XP or Vista and only have 512 meg of RAM and windows is eating up 200 meg, your video card another 128 meg, then those programs are eating the remainder, you have nothing left when you actually start surfing the net, so the hangs begin.

    this could also be a virus...but i dont see why it would manifest itself only while your downloading. I would update and run your antivirus software also.

    Go into the preferences/settings of each program running down by your clock and set them not to start when windows starts.

    go to your startup folder (START-ALL PROGRAMS-STARTUP) and del and entries here -this will not delete the programs , only keep the shortcuts from starting the programs when windows starts.

    you can also click START - RUN - type in MSCONFIG , this open the system config utility, if you go to the tab at the top marked "startup" and uncheck all the boxes in front of everything except your printer, virus scanner, and video card. this will keep these background programs from running at startup. reboot and click OK when it restarts to get past the message stating youve chnged the way windows starts.

    hope this helps ya a lil more..

There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

If possible make sure you or your friends are not behind NAT or firewall. It is much easier to connect if you have all public IPs and not something starting with 192.168...

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers that are needed even when you are creating server to your own computer.

Sometimes in the lobby the server just dies quietly and you need to the restart the whole game. You will notice this when players just stop coming to your server. This usually happens because you switched to Windows even for one second and sometimes it just happens without any reason.

Because the liberty comptuer only cuts access to the internet to your computer, and not the connection to the yahoo website. Suggest getting yourself a stopwatch. Try to keep track of your time a little sooner.

I have trouble connecting to the internet vie a motorola surfboard modem. I have optus cable this pc works but the XP wont. when I put installation disc in it goes so far then I get an error message...

If you are switching the hardware connected directly to the surfboard, then you may need to call the Internet Service Provider and let them know. They usually set up a session based off of the hardware address of the device hooked up to their modem. If it changes, sometimes you have to get them to close the old session.

Sites that require passwords (facebook, etc...) unavailable

They might have changed the internet security settings on you.
In Internet Explorer go to "Tools", Internet options then the Security tab. You can adjust the settings from there.
Good luck!

Requires many reboots

Sounds like a software related problem. Easiest approach would be to back up any valuable files and restore to original factory setup. You may need to purchase an external USB optical drive to reload the Operating System. If this does solve your issue then you may want to consult a local trusted pc repair shop so they can run hardware testing. Unless you have a warranty, with Acer you have a one year MFG. Warranty from the original purchase date.
