My server keeps dropping me!

  1. Do any of you get "dropped" by your server? I have a wireless cable modem. I get dropped all of the time. For example, this is my 4th attempt at posting this. I get half way through and it drops me. How frustrating! Even more frustrating, I have no idea who to go to with this. My cable company? Anyone else have this problem? Thanks ahead for any words of wisdom.

    It may not be your server causing the problem - you may have an infected hard drive. If you are concerned and don't want to pay $$$$$ for someone to look at it thenm I can suggest a forum for you to look at.

    I used them recently, the advice comes from experts and it is free.

    Hey, thanks so much! I called the cable co today and they gave me the run around. I visited the site you gave me and they helped a lot.

    Thanks again. I really do appreciate it.

    I agree, it might be your hard drive rather than your internet server. My computer was doing the same thing a couple of weeks ago. First I thought it was a virus but it turned out that my computer was infested with SpyWare. If you get a lot of pop-ups and SPAM then it might be that. Companies download little programs onto your computer while you're online and monitor your internet usage so they can send you online advertising. They spy on you, hence the name SpyWare. I got a great program from Best Buy called Spy Sweeper and it worked wonders on my computer!!! I use dial-up, but my boyfriend has a cable connection with a firewall - and the Spy Sweeper found that even HIS computer was infested. Just a thought!
