McAfee Privacy Service+dial-up=restart?

I recently posted a problem with my cousin's PC and Internet Explorer, well he took it upon himself to try and fix it and we ended up having to start from scratch with a frsh install of Win2000 Pro.

After the install we added McAfee VirusScan, Spamkiller, Personel Firewall and Privacy service.

Well for some reason when privacy service is active and we try and connect to his dial-up ISP, the computer restarts upon attemting to log onto the ISP afte rte user/password has been verified. No warning, it just goes blank and restarts.

Through process of elimination we identified the Privacy Service as the culprit. Anyone have any ideas as to why this wouls happen? We updated everything in the McAfee Suite last night, but still it resarts.
