Computer Freezes when connected to internet.

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.

If those scans come up as clean could you please post a Hijackthis log file so we can look at what processes you have running?

My Acer netbook one freezes. PLEASE HELP!!!


First thing to do is to scan your system using some powerful antivirus program. Now fix a freezing computer by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Hope it would help you. Thanks

Maybe there are programs eating away at your memory.  Too much is loaded or simply just running in the background. Check these out first.

My computer freezes when connecting WIFI adapter


Does this happen if you try connecting it into all USB ports? Try another USB port. Do you know if your USB ports are 2.0?

Webcam freeze, bad cam or what?


It is not the web cam or the computer why it freezes. It is the internet connection using in the philippines. the upload stream is too slow thats it lags the image. It could also be caused by the computer memory. But most of the time it is the connection. Be sure that when he/ she is using the webcam, shes not doing other things on the internet like downloading or browsing.
