If the problem is occurring at start up, then start ur pc in safe mode then check ur start up items, which are unnecessary, remove them! Another thing may help you, go, C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME, and find if there exists some unknown program or not! If it is yes, then simply delete it! I told you this, because some days ago I've faced similar problem i.e, every time after connecting to net my pc was creating a new net connection itself! and my broadband got disconnected ! I've solved this problem by deleting the unknown program!
Check, whether It works or not!!
