I just installed NOD32 on my 2nd computer today. Immediately afterwards I installed Zone Alarm Free. So I'm not certain if this issue is NOD related or ZA. But I have a broadband connection (comcast cable internet). I've never seen my computer "go offline" until tonight. It's happened 3 times in the last 5 hours. I'm always able to connect right back to the net, but for some reason my computer is temporarily going offline. Any ideas what this could be? Could this be NOD related? Should I run winsockXP fix? PS...I'm still in the trial period. Once I get things lined out you won't have many questions from me like you do now.
