Hi all,


I ran into a peculiar problem with my Windows 7 Desktop. Whenever I am using my phone's internet on my PC via tethering (not when browsing the phone's SD card), my softwares hang and crash. Or if I try starting the software once I am connected to the net, the software wont start till the USB is plugged out. Software starts as soon as the usb is disconnected. Searched the net for solutions but it seems that there is more than one reason why this happens and hence different specific solutions. Dont know which one should I try. Like removing the yellow marked device in device manager dint work.


Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

I would suggest posting over in the Networking forums for some more expert advice:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/21/networking/

A yellow marked device in Device Manager may also need advice from the Internal Hardware experts:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/ 

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
