I have a strange problem that I have been trying to solve for awhile now. When I try to download anything that takes longer than 1 hour to receive, I lose my internet connection around the 1 hour mark. Some of the times when I try to get back on the web, I get the blue screen that tells me that the memory is being dumped and then the PC restarts. The only way I have been able to get back on the web is by restarting.
I am using a Windows XP Pro with a network broadband connection and have tried refreshing the connection, re-setting up the connection, and even using download managers and other web browsers. I have run Spybot, Adaware, McAfee Virusscan, HouseCall, and Stinger, but I still have the problem.
Now, when I restart the PC, during the load process, I get a message saying “Invalid boot.ini - booting from C:\Windows.” Could this be the problem or is there something else causing the trouble? I am willing to post a Hijackthis file in the Hijackthis forum if necessary, but I wasn't sure exactly what the problem was.
Thank You so much!
