I have the joys of having a problem with my internet dropping randomly. the odd thing is it's from my own PC, every other PC connected to the router don't seem to cause the problem.

I first thought it was a browser issue, but have since eliminated that as it happened using any browser on my PC.

I would love some help with this problem as it's totally annoying me

Are these PCs wireless or wired?

Also, to set a foundation for troubleshooting, do a network reset. Do not skip the waiting times.

Turn off every PC. Then unplug the router and the modem. Wait 10 seconds.

Plug in the modem. Wait 30 seconds.

Plug in the router. Wait 60 seconds.

Turn on the PCs and retest network operation.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

As you posted also here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic442937.html
Do you suspect this problem is caused by malware? If so I'll close this topic so you can continue in the other topic. If you do not think this is malware related let me know and I'll close the other topic.

regards, Elise
