    Every time i change an area through teleport (hearthstone, instance portal, battleground/arena in and out, mage/shattrath porta, warlock/meeting stone summon, and also when i taxi-fly to shattrath), WoW freezes.
    It starts by reducing my FPS to lower than 1 (or so i belive, if i try to turn my character, or someone moves, i only see separate images, never a fluid movment), then everyone stops, although they keep the movment animation, and i can't cast any spell. I can move around, but interact with nothing. Strangely enough, if i send a message, i can't see it, but everyone else can (wich actualy is useful when im in a party, read on).
    When this happens, i immediatly open my browser, and open a light-weight web page. I do this, for each time this crash happens, my internet is disabled. If the pages open, then it was a simple DC, and i can relog. However if the page keeps loading, but nothing appears, then i need to reboot my computer. I have checked with my ISP provider, and the connection is not interrupted, and i can use the internet on the other computer connected to the router.

    I do not get any error message

    I have all the video settings minimal, and WoW in a 1150x720 windowed frame. I have many addons, although the memory they use is under 15MB (i disabled WoWEcon [40MB+] and CT_Mail mod [15MB+]).

    Have you tried disabling all addons and seeing what happens then? might not be a memory amount problem, but maybe a corrupted addon

    the first thing i thought of, was running a permissions and a disk verification, but the i couldnt verify de disk (the computer got the busy ball icon for ever). So i downloaded Onyx, and verified the disk from there. There was something that needed repair. I started the computer with the instalation disk 1, and repaired from there. After that it was solved! :D now i can play normaly once again!
