msimn.exe = Outlook Express
iexplorer.exe = Internet Explorer

Thanks . I didn't know why it had started occurring. Seems like it's safe so no problem

Pretty much in the same vein...

I read this thread because it might have been something I was looking for.

Background... I'm on nthell broadbean. And... Every so often, when I'm browsing and occasionally start up, I get a request to use my dial-up connection. I've hunted high and low to try and find out what is making that request - with no success.

I followed your link to liutilities, the page came up and instantly asked for me to make a dial-up connection.

Can you suggest why?
