Windows XP Professional Problems

By terrynz001 ·
Sometimes, when i connect to the internet via dialup the dialog stays on "Registring your computer on the network" and it stays on this.

I then click Cancel, but when i go to the Network Connections folder, it says that it is still connecting. Then i have to restart my computer by the power swicth as when i log off, it stays on "Saving your Settings" and doesnt move on to Windows is Shuting Down". Is their any thing that i can do? It does this all the time. Even after re-instaling the OS.

do you have a router or a network within your house?

if you dont chances are if it is a new computer.. you have a nic card.. just go into you "network connections" and disable your "10/100" or "LAN" card

if that dont work.. you can always try to do a system cleanup.. i recommend.. these things in this order.. get the best results..

1) Lavasoft Adaware.. - Freeware
2) SpyBot Search and destroy - Freeware
- also switch to advance and runt he check internals under the tools tab.. and the "system startup" make sure the info page to the left is open( it tells u info about what starts up.. turn off anything not needed or if it does not come up with info.. figure out what it is most of the time you dont need it...
3) CCleaner - the best thing out there for the temp files.. i recently got this computer with so much spyware i cleaned a total of 12.52GB's of temp files from 4 user profiles on XP. and it is a reg checker.

4) VoptXP - Trialware. - the best damn defragger ever.

run it and you will deff see a big difference in speed.

now if this does not fix it your computer with still be running alot better and more reliable so ehh oh well

but goodluck

Seems like modem driver not works well. Your computer stays on "Saving your settings" because it tries to stop something (service) and it can't.
You can use Task Manager to stop that service.
Try to get a new driver for your modem.
