Dialup box keeps appearing all the time..

  cragulas 17:01 29 Sep 2004

Running 98SE.

The Internet dialup box keeps appearing on startup & I have to click it repeatedly to close it down.

Ive looked in startup menu- nothing there
Ive looked in MSconfig startup- nothing there that I recognise & have done a SPYbot/Adaware/Norton Antivirus sweep to no avail.

How can I track down what is starting this up?

(it happens on dialup and broadband, & was with me before braoadband)

opening task manager and seeing what's running?
Check anything you may not recognise against the list at click here
Last night I had something running that none of my anti virus/spyware stuff could find, it turned out to be a hidden file. Good luck.

Go to Tools/Internet options/Connections/tick never dial a connection. That will stop it. then wait and see what complains.
