comment Enabled boot logging option in Win XP doesn't produce ntbtlog.txt file
Thanks. That gave me some idea on where to start. The file seems to be created after I disabled all the Avast drivers at startup.

comment Download of some files keeps getting stuck at certain point
Thanks Moab. I think that might be the issue. I changed to a cable and was able to download the file successfully. Maybe I'll try switching the wireless adapter with another one when I get the chance and really confirm if the one I'm currently using is ill.

Hmm ... that is an interesting thought. I did it on a wireless so far but maybe I'll try it using an Ethernet cable and see how that goes.

I'm not using IE7 or 8. I did this on IE6 and the latest version of Firefox. And it couldn't be malware either, because I recently formatted and re-installed the OS and I've only installed a small amount of applications so far - just the Firefox browser and download managers. This issue was happening prior to the OS re-install and afterwards.

I tried that, but it won't progress any further, even when I stop and resume the download. It just stops at the 72% mark.

comment DHCP negotiations consistently fails to obtain lease on first try and works on second try
I think it is loading the network card module before trying to get the IP (what I did was disabled the option to bring the card up on startup and checked an "lsmod" right after the box has completed booting into Linux and it shows the needed modules are present. The scripts wouldn't even get to the part of calling dhclient if the modules were not loaded). However, I'll give your suggestion a go - it seems like a nice workaround.

Thanks, that was a lot of useful information.

comment Is there a way to refresh the current configuration used by modprobe with a newly updated modules.conf file?
Thanks, I already know how to do that. The problem that I am having though is when I have the line <i>alias eth1 rt61</i>, it loads the modules on boot, but when I try to bring up the interface using <i>ifconfig eth1 up</i>, it returns <i>eth1: unknown interface: No such device</i>. So I've been trying to play around with the alias and options in modules.conf to try to get the interface up.

Yes, that's it. I'm trying to add an eth1 alias for a wireless network driver that uses wlan0 as its interface, but it's not behaving the way I expect it, and I have to keep rebooting to see the results of my different experimentation.
