Hi, got a problem that annoys me. If either my computer has been on a while or my connection has been terminated, due to 2 hour cut off, why do i have to restart my computer. Because if i dont and redial i just get page cannot be displayed etc.

Its not a big problem just a bit annoying

Thx

Of course you don't tell us what operating system, what browser, what ISP etc you are using but... could be a problem with your modem driver. Try downloading and installing the latest drivers.

The shutdown option may have been disabled in the registry. I can't remember which key it is to change it back but you'll find instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/ (just do an appropriate search)

It may also be because you are using a non-adminstrator account. Check your status in the control panel (user accounts).
