Sometimes when i try to upload a .rar or a picture on a new email using yahoo or hotmail, it gets stuck on a random % of upload, and my internet goes down.
I have to reboot my pc or reactivate my network card.
It happens only on my pc, any idea of the problem?
I use win 7 home 32bit

I'm just going to go with the obvious and say use something better than yahoo or hotmail - all elitism aside, they both bombard you with junk and I've always known uploading files to both to be nigh impossible with large/multiple files.

Give googlemail a try.

The mail provider wouldn't cause your whole connection to fail, could you be more specific as to what is going wrong? Only two problems I can see is either your ISP drops your connection (unlikely, unless you have wireless or crap-tier ISP) or you have internal overheating problems (very unlikely).

Try seeing if there's a problem with you NIC card:
Start
Run
type "cmd"
type ping 127.0.0.1

If you get a response, its your connection. If you don't, its your computer.

Running through proxy servers might also cause uploads/downloads to fail at random places. I really don't think you're using a proxy :P.
