My friend {yeah yeah not that old chestnut} has win 95 and a dial up internet connection.

when he is already connected to the internet, he can hear his modem dialling out to what I can only presume to be a porn site or some such.

So he is being charged twice whilst connected.
How can he stop this from happening?

I have suggested Ad-aware or Spybot s & d to get rid of it? or can anyone suggest anything else?

After running spybot / adaware goto

Tools > internet options > connections

Check there is only the one setting for his ISP delete any others.

Erm If he's already connected how can his modem dial out? Surely the line is engaged?

Not sure how this little scam works but I have heard of other people being stung on their phone bill because these premium rate pay per view porn sites.

Thanx folks for your help!!!!
