Dialup window appearing on execution of programs

  blockhead 20:09 31 Jul 2003

The problem has appeared on my computer just recently without obvious reason every time you start some programs the dialup/internet window shows to get round it i select never dial a connection in internet tools but I would like a solution that allows me to have dial the default selected without prompting the dialup window

Some progs are prompting for registation when the dial-up pops up. You can navigate via HOTKEYS to delete these if required. The 'never dial a connection' is ok if you have an internet icon on desktop to launch.

Have you got Anti Virus? Is it up to date?

Some virus "hook" the exe command - in other words everytime you start a program (exe) you also start a copy of the virus.

If you have no AV then get AVG6 Free - click here
