I have got a windows xp computer and i am connecting to the internet using a ntl 250 cable modem connected by USB.
my internet worked correctly until i started getting messages about a registry being dammaged.
when i download a file it gets some of the way through the download and then it stops and then the internet doesnt work until i either reset the device or the computer. the problem is not the modem as i have it connected to another computer and i dont get this problem. can someone help me please??

"until i started getting messages about a registry being dammaged"

Where were these messages from?

It'll cost 28$ to fix it.

It's a come-on.

What AV, Firewall and Ad-blockers are you running?

it notifies me of problems with the registry of the computer, is there any ways of cleaning this with out using a program that i get notified to download
