Hey, i want some help i dont know what happened but it seems that my internet keeps failing. When i play a video game such as counter strike or world of warcraft, after about five minutes i get disconnected and my internet fails for about a minute. Ive had a few problems like this before, like i had somekind of browser hijack before and i couldnt access yahoo or google. But this is differnt. I dont think the modem is the problem. I think it may be some kind of spy ware or something. I used Spyware doctor, removed some programs that sneaked onto my computer. I also tried Trend Micro antivirus that helped clean up some stuff nothing helped though. I then tried using restore point and that failed to help. Any SuggEstions?
