Something dialling out

    Just the last few days if I bootup with external modem switched on,
    something dials as soon as Windows is loaded. I have gone through
    running processes, run, etc, but can't find anything unusual. I set
    programmes to update manually and have run AVG, Antivir, Spybot,
    Ad-Aware but have drawn a blank. It started after I was talking to a
    friend about setting up his modem and I accidentally clicked on the
    dial-up connect instead of properties. I deleted the dial-up and made
    a new one, but when I went to put in the string in Extra Settings I
    found it was already there. Where did that come from?

    When the dial-up was deleted nothing happened on bootup but it started
    again when I made a new one. I don't save the password so it doesn't
    actually connect. Don't want to try saving the password because I
    don't want it to become permanent, like the string in the Extra
    settings seems to be.

    Never ever set up a Dialing Internet that way, use Net pal to do the dialing,
    a far better way and you can control the minimum connect speed, and like the
    time connected.

    No its not Spyware..



    It is possible for you to have set it up to connect on boot up..

    I had a similar (not identical) problem - found IE was set (dunno how/when
    it happened) to automatically check for updates.

    I had checked whether Log on to network was checked, it wasn't but it
    still tried to logon to network all the time. Then one time I went
    into the settings again, and this time, everything that was previously
    unchecked was checked. I unchecked them again and this time it has
    stuck. Don't know why I had hassles with it before.
