Losing connection to Agent and mIRC every 5 minutes..

Hello,
I am losing connection to Agent (usenet download manager) every 5 minutes..and mIRC several times a day. Also during multip player game play on the internet, I will lose connection every third game and on ventrillo a game chat program (it stays on, yet I am disconnected in a relatively short time after logging on.

I have ran trend-micros virus scan and their spyware scan and have located no culprits.

When I click on my network settings and goto status and repair settings I see  it has a line that says license and it shows that I have a license for 10 minutes? Is this the problem? Or part of it?

I run windows xp pro and had no problems with my connection previously for many many months until last week, when all the disconnects started happening. I realise to be disconnected from any IRC program is normal, however I was able to stay connected for days at a time before this problem.

Any ideas?

the 10 minutess license should get renewed in time, but if it does not, that can cause a problem

I suspect however that you are expreriencing either packet loss, wich you can diagnose by pinging a server you are having trouble with and see if 100% of the packages gets a reply. It is also possible that the connection is lost by you cable/adsl/other modem, wich can also be diagnosed by running a ping against a problem server and see if any packets come true at all.

defragmenting your hd is not the likely cause it works better now, so it probably was the fault of you internet line losing packets... Good to see it solved. Did you ever try my sugestions, wich if gave right after you asked the question?

I used Neo Trace Pro to diagnose my line long before I asked this question.
And also the routes to my server, my host and to any game server where I was losing connections. So I had already tried that. The license is fine, sorry to waste your time, I am rather impatient when it comes for waiting for answers as most of my questions I submit, I am under either a deadline to fix or I had exhausted every other option and came for some quick answers/comments. I realise people work for a living and donate spare time here. I have 2 open questions with a total of almost 1000 points that never helped me. This is one of them. I only have less then 500 points left and need to get my 1000 points to ask more questions. I am not trying to "pull anything" just havent received the help I needed in time.
