Hi all,

this problem's been happening for around a year now. Whenever I plug an ethernet cord into the port on my network card, my computer briefly displays a BSOD then reboots. So far I've managed to live with it because once Windows restarts the internet works fine. Otherwise I can disable the adapter, plug in the connection, then enable the adapter again which also works. However, I've recently replaced the old card with a wireless network card. So now, whenever that tries to connect to a network, the PC spontaneously reboots in the exact same way.

I'm currently typing this from 'Safe Mode with Networking', where connecting and disconnecting doesn't seem to give any issues at all. Spyware and virus checks bring up nothing. A last attempt at turning off NortonAV or Zonealarm then connectnig doesn't fix the problem.

AMD Athlon 2800+
1.5 gigs RAM
Booster PCI Wireless Card

Any suggestions at all???

Here's the BSOD message:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you have this "stop error screen", restart
your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps.
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or
remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory
options, such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use a safe mode
to remove or disable components, restart your computer and press F-8 to
select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Here's a link on how to remove Panda software from your system (the source of the netflt.sys file): http://www.pandasoftware.co.uk/support/tit...htm#hunst#hunst

I'd also suggest updating your network card drivers from the manufacturer's website.
