I don't seem to be able to make more than a single internet connection at any one time. If I try to open a second page the PC locks up and I have to restart to continue. The PC is one year old, I work with Sky Broadband - and I used to be able to make multiple connections.
Can anyone offer a solution?

Do you mean that you can't open 2 instances of your browser at the same time, or you can't have 2 computers connecting to the internet at the same time?

What browser are you using (Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2.0.0.14, etc.)? And what version of Windows are you using?

I can only open one instance of browser on my PC at a time.
I use Windows XP Version 2002, Service Pack 2 and work with Internet Explorer.

Do you have any popup blockers installed? If so I would recommend that you disable these.
