conect to dialog box popping up

using 98se. Connect to dialog box keeps popping up during other programs. Have spybot search and destroy and spywareblaster. Can not locate the program calling the connection. Any help greatly appreciated.

Try running the free programme Adaware from as it may pick up something spybot and spysweeper missed. assuming your anti virus doesn't find anything either then
run "msconfig" and disable start up items then reboot and try starting the programmes manually one at a time to see if you can find the culprit.

Thanks. I have adaware so will try the one program at a time suggestion and get back with the results tomorrow.

It seems that when updating my span killer Mcafee loaded Mcagentexe and mcupdateexe along with the span killer update and this was calling for a connection. I also took out the scheduling agent just to be sure. Still get a dial up window when I first boot up but no more pop ups.
