    internet stops on vista

    hi, i got 2 pc's and a laptop. 1 64 bit vista running on amd proc, and internet just works fine (ie8) with all the tabs i want to open.
    on my laptop and other pc i have a 32 bit vista running, 1 amd proc and 1 intel. both 4 gb Ram. whenever i open a internet connection (doesn't matter ie or firefox) it works, but suddenly it stops. a new page will not open, left in the tab a circle keeps running and finally it states that the pages cannot be found. all started with upgrading from ie 6 to ie 7 and ie 8. but as i said earlier, also firefox stops. all i can do is restart computer and start again. interval is not regular, nor are the amount of tabs opened. only thing is it happens only on the 2 32 bit systems.

    any suggestions, beside changing to 64 bit, which is not an option for several reasons. i assume others have good connections with 32 bit systems??
