    I am having problems connecting to the Internet. It will let me be connected for 1 minute before disconnecting. It will only happen with one certain ISP. Netzero. The night before it stopped working, I tried to do a direct cable connection between the desktop computer and a laptop. I am not sure what I did, because netzero stopped working. I am not sure what to do. I checked the idle disconnect. but that was not the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks,
    Greg

    do you use free netzero? or netzero pay? Are you sure you haven't run out of time?

    Hey I have that problem too but with Tele2 (in Sweden). Hellishly anoying. Solved it by changing ISP. Really strange problem.

    I am paying for netzero. It is strange, but I would like to stay with Netzero if at all possible.

    Here is how I got it fixed FYI:

    From Mark Ferguson on another newsgroup.

    Read the help to locate "Virtual Memory". Set it to none, restart,

    Delete the (hidden) file named 'pagefile.sys' in the system drive root folder,

    (if found). Return the Virtual Memory to normal, and reboot again

    The Windows Update site has issued a patch ("Error on Restarting...")
