O/S: Microsoft Windows 98 4.10.1998
IE: 6.0
After I connect to the Internet the computer reboots itself intermitently. I already cheched for virus with AVG soft and Panda AV and nothing was found. I checked for Spyware with Spybot and they were detected and removed.

What could be happening?

Are you running a fully patched and updated IE6?

Check Windows Update.

If you have an updated version, try a repair of the IE installation:

Add/Remove Programs, highlight Microsoft Internet Explorer, click Add/Remove and select Repair. Click Next and OK.

Reboot when asked to.

Check if problem persists.

It's maybe a virus. Try this http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/FxSasser.exe

I have had this very problem and it was the motherboard....   I tried everything and finally replace the motherboard and problem solved.   While I was researching I also discovered that this can be heat related as well so check all of your fans.

Connect further...control easier

Zoldy2000,

Did you have the computer rebooting itself after connecting to the internet only?, because that's my case.

Thanks

Try downloading a different Browser and test.

Firefox is a good alternative:
