dial-up box keeps reappearing...

very annoying. and that's why i have broadband, to get me away from these troubles... lol

anyway, a friend's pc has this problem, the dial-up box keeps re-appearing on bootup. have run spybot and cleaned what it needs to clean (yes have updated too) but didn't resolve the issue. have also removed and then added dial-up connections, no change. did a repair on IE6, no change.

so something is triggering the dial-up box, but what?

nothing obvious seen in registry or msconfig...

(windows 98)

any ideas anyone? please?

thanks, i was just looking at that. don't think this is it though as it states: "This behavior can occur if the computer is infected with the Pretty Park virus" - but there are no viruses on the PC...?

i was now looking at click here and it may be my next step to check this.

anyone else have any ideas to throw in, plz do so!
