Hi. occassionaly when I try to disconnect fron my isp, my computor freezes. this happens when i get out of netscape and it asks if you want to close your modem. Awhile back with another computor i had the same problem. somebody had me change a file which changed the name of one of the modem drivers i believe. any ideas. I have a 33.6 winmodem. thanks

Try this:

Dial-Up Networking Locks Up Computer when Disconnecting:
The symptoms of this problem are that the computer locks up hard (requiring a reboot) when disconnecting a Dial-Up Networking (DUN) connection. The following solution has been reported to correct this problem in most (but not necessarily all) cases:
 Locate the file VNBT.386 (use Start/Find/Files & Folders)
 Disable the file by renaming it (for example, rename it to VNBT.386.OLD)
 Reboot the computer
I'm told disabling that file will have no effect on a standalone system connecting to the net using DUN. I do not know what effect it will have if the PC is also connected to a network.
[Thanks to Dale Simpson for this tip.]
