Have a new computer (emachine et1331G-03W..nothing to run NASA with, but sufficient for what we do). Have had it about a month. It came with Windows 7. Have a Motorola modem through ATT internet. We keep getting disconnected. Seems to have just happened the last three days, so I don't know that it just being win 7 that is doing it. Also, AOL 9.5 keeps getting "frozen" at odd times, though Mozilla's Firefox doesn't seem to have problems. We do a lot of movie watching and my husband plays Spades on yahoo, so there's no telling what we've picked up. I keep running AVG and Spybot S & D, and they're coming up clean. I did have a problem with connection speed three days ago that the ISP had to redo our network from their end. They thought I might have a bad modem, but then said that they got the problem fixed. Is there anything I can run (and not pay a fortune for) to check for anything else icky that may have crept on to the machine? Or do you think the modem is going ka-put? I'm not the most tech-savy person, but I'm pretty good at following directions.
