Hi. Occasionally my computor freezes when I disconnect from my modem. Some time back i had the same problem and somebody from experts-exchange had me change a file name and the problem stopped. If i remember, when I changed the name it changed the file into something like "virtual device driver".
I could be wrong about this but the name definetly changed.
I have since gotten a new computor and cant remember what he or she had me do. I have a sportster winmodem 33.6
can any one help me. thanks

HI
YOUR COMPUTE FREEZE BECAUSE THERE IS SOME HARD WARE OR SOFTWARE ERROR  YOUR MODEM DO NOT RESPOND ON DISCONNECT MOSTLY THIS TYPE OF PROBLEMS COMES WHEN YOUR MODE IS NOT OK OR THE DRIVER FOR THE MODEN IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALED TRY REMOVING THE PRESENT DRIVER AND REINSTALLING IT AND DO CHECK FOR THE CONFLITS IN CONTROLL PANEL FOR SYSTEM.

An easier way would be to reduce the number of items in your network setting, like IPX/SPX etc.  Also if you goto file Device Manager, select "Modem" and uncheck "Disable in hardware profile" I have found this to stop my computer from freezing for good.
