  1. When it shutsdown, do you get a message that says "Computer is shutting down in 30 seconds, please save all your information" Because, all you have to do it go to Start > Run > CMD > and Type Shutdown -a I think you should post a Hijackthis log so we can be of more help. Hijackthis can be found here: http://download.cnet.com/Trend-Micro-Hijac...4-10227353.html Good luck, XPS
  2. RPC stands for: Microsoft Remote Procedure Call It's designed to facilitate traffic between a server and it's client. Are you running a server? XPS
  3. Marci, I am unsure if your problem has been addressed or not. Have you tried downloading firefox? It can be found here: Mozilla.org. If firefox works, then the problem that I can see is that IE has "SOCKS" enabled. Which, to simply fix this, you go into the options of IE and disable it. But, try firefox first and let us know if you are able to browse the net. Hope this helps, XPS
  4. From what I can analyze from this, Internet Explorer is pointing to the Localhost. Are you running a local proxy server? If not, I suggest you remove from the proxy settings, and try running IE again. While it's not advised to uninstall IE, most people who completely despise it will put their localhost IP address into the Proxy settings to essentially disable it. I hope this helps. Xps
  5. Trust me, you don't want to go with Comcast, that ISP is the leader in Net Neutrality Anyhow, there are alot of problems with ADSL connections. When you experience intermittent connections, does the "DSL" light flash on and off? XPS
  6. Just make your desktop a simple SSH, and tunnel between your laptop and your desktop PC. To read more, you can go here: http://www.openssh.com/ Or of course, you can use some sort of VNC as mentioned above. I'm not sure if you want to be interractive with both the Laptop and the desktop, or if you are more or less sharing files between the desktop and the laptop. If you just want to access your home PC from anywhere, there are quick, third part solutions such as Logmein.com, and gotomypc.com Good luck.
  7. Wozzi7, Have you fixed this issue or are you still having problems? Sincerely, XPS
  8. Hello, Trafkjamm, Yes, these "monitors" are referred to as "packet sniffers", and there are many programs on the market both free and paid. Here are a few that I would recommend you use. I'm not sure of how extensive your knowledge is in this field: Also, I am unsure of what Operating System you are running, I'm going to assume Windows. Ettercap: It can be found here: http://ettercap.sourceforge.net/ I don't recommend this one, but it's called Ethereal, it can be found here: http://www.ethereal.com/ For more advanced packet detection, you can run something called Back Trace, it's a heavily intensive compilation of multiple pieces of software, it can be found here: http://www.remote-exploit.org/backtrack.html I must add that your problem could be as simple as a malfunctioning Nic, or even some sort of malware. If you posted a HJT log, you can find HJT here: http://download.cnet.com/Trend-Micro-Hijac...4-10227353.html it would help more. Please keep us posted And I hope your problems are resolved soon. Good luck, XPS
