Hello Jon.

Not sure if this is relevant but yesterday myself and a colleague at UWA 
had probs on Windows XP Pro machines where the DNS was screwed up.   In one 
case it was because something called newdotnet had been installed (spyware? 
trojan?) and not cleanly removed.   Thus the dns was hijacked and very odd 
things would happen as a result.

My case was not due to newdotnet so I am still digging :-(   This may be a 
new threat?

Not sure but my colleague's client may have been running Win 2000

Of course none of this would result in router resets so could be COMPLETELY
