    disconnect the power & phone line to the modem for 10-20 seconds. connect cable from modem to computer. reconnect power to modem than phone line. try connecting to net.

    possible so run your anti-virus & anti-spyware programs to see what happens. are you using yahoo mail? tyr it on another computer to see if still does it or not.
