Well I just did a fresh install of Windows ME on this machine. I am running a Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard with a Intel PIII 500 CPU I have NERO 5.0 with newest update, I have Norton 2003, and that is all. I have an Intel 2200 internal DSL modem and I installed Black Ice with AP service enabled. Black Ice will NOT stay running more than 30 seconds on this machine. I installed trial version 3.5. Anybody else having this problem?
