For this issue, get wired. You are more than welcome to complain to your machine's maker, the ones who wrote the drivers, the P2P client and more but the solution has been simple for those that learned. Get wired.

"complain to your machine's maker, the ones who wrote the drivers, the P2P client"

In my reply I have supplied you where the errors are. Tackle that. However some download software and more via P2P and no one can save that machine.

No real clues in your post, I'm afraid. If both OS'es have the same problem, it probably isn't malware nor a corrupted OS. But it won't harm, of course, to do a clean install of one and see if that helps.

If that doesn't help, it's most likely a problem in the P2P-program itself (some hidden Vista incompatibility) or in the modem driver (same) or in Vista itself.

If that's the case, you probably can't fix this yourself. All you can try: change the program, change the modem or change the OS. How about going back to XP, for example?

I assume both versions of Vista are legal and bought by you from Microsoft. That's not really cheap, 2 copies of Vista Ultimate.

1. The machine's maker.
You can raise this as a warranty issue. The errors can be failed ram or other parts.

2. The drivers.
Enough said.

3. P2P use.
That in itself can be dangerous. Some P2P users do the equivalent of heavy drug use (crack and more.) The solution there is to get them to stop such use. But just like drug users you sometimes seem them lash out.
