My neighbour is in trouble again! On booting up his dialer comes on screen. Now, I'm pretty certain that I have seen a checkbox somewhere where, if ticked, will cuae this to happem - but where!! Anyone know? It's a pain in the youknowwhere when your short term memory goes on the blick!
I tried ticking the Never Dial box on my own computer and, unfortunately, all that happened was that it wouldn't dial up when I wanted it to - so that can't be the trouble. I shall have to look through msconfig/startup to see if something is trying to do an ET on it <g>
I installed AVG sometime ago for him - knowing him I don't think for one minute that he would keep up to date with it - as you can gather he needs a servant! As AVG loads up as part of the boot process I wonder if that is the program trying to 'phone home? Is it wise for him to click connect and see where it takes hiom? He's not in at the moment - rarely is - so I can't check.
Possibly wise to go into AVG the conventional way and simply bring him up to date and then see what happens -- any thouhgts on that?
