My computer keeps freezing while I'm connected to the internet. It does not freeze when not connected. A while back my computer was always dropping the interenet connection but I changed where it was hooked up to the phone jack and now it freezes every half hour to hour. What can I do?
The first step is to verify that you are not infected with a spyware or virus infection. The fact that you are only having freezing problems when you are connected to the internet is a sign that you may have some kind of infection.
The Geek Squad website has links to free online virus and spyware scanners that can tell you if you're infected.

Hi, There maybe several explanations for the freeze ups,but I think the major one lies with your internet services connections.Whats the speed of the connection?How's the networks availability?Try this and see what happens:-
Uninstall and reinstall the browser[firefox]
Set firefox as the default browser.If still freezes;-
Choose another network for the internet connections.
this could be caused by a number of things for you to check. maintanence is a key to keeping your computer running. keep your antivirus, antispyware up to date. keep your pc from overheating by taking a spray can of air to it (mind static electricity; after you unplug all wires from the pc and take the case off, touch the powersupply for 10 seconds to balance your electricity with the pc's so you don't fry anything.) hope this helps.
this is probably due to insufficient RAM or a slow processor. you should try defragging and a disk clean on your computer before upgrading your RAM. hope this helps. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions
try doing a system restore on it. To tell You the truth I can't stand Norton because if You miss one of the updates it just doesn't seem to work. I had Norton a long time ago and got rid of it. All My family and friends that had it got rid of theirs also. Hope that helps You out. You can contact Me at email@example.com if You have more questions.
