Get yourself a firewall. Open only the ports that you require open to run your application.

Got any more specifics?
What game are you running when this happens?
Is there a pattern? IE: Does it occur at a certain point in the game, or after a certain time?

In my experience, this is usually caused by someone probing your system for open ports and maybe running an exploit, poor programming, or a corrupt Operating System.

Had the instructor keep journal of exact times, place in the game and machine number. Two weeks later those three machines had to have their DDR RAM replaced...it gave out completely. They are running smoothly now...I'm wondering now if the otherthree machines are going to loose their RAM also...faulty RAM?

THANKS!
