Having problems with your Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop ?

I cannot get online unless I restart the computer, then when I switch it off I have to go through the same routine to get on line again. Virgin say it is not a fault with the server.

Though i need to know the os platform u r using..

however, this is quite common n critical problem of a trojan/ malware..it stops the 'server' and many more windows service(s), which also disables n hangs internet connection n disconnect option..ethernet n etc..itz not the problem with isp..

Server, Computer Browser, Remote Registry, Secondary Logon, Windows Time, Remote Procedure Call (RPC), DNS Client, DHCP Client, COM+ Event System, HTTP SSL, Network Connections, Network Location Awarness (NLA)..

2)hva licensed and UPDATED antivirus installed (i prefer avg/kaspersky,remember, without updation a full version antivirus is useless)..

3) download, install n run microsoft kb890830..http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=AD724AE0-E72D-4F54-9AB3-75B8EB148356&displaylang=en..

5) remove all unnecessary software from add/remove programs..

6) download, install n run 'Advanced System Care Pro'..http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCare-Pro/3000-2086_4-10399324.html..
