Even though I have a broadband connection, I like the added security of staying connected only when I need to be--so I am all the time connecting and disconnecting as required.
That said, my dialler pops up every few minutes asking for me to connect. This constant interruption is driving me up the wall. I am unable to determine which program is directing this unwanted behavior so I can correct it.
Does anyone know how I can determine which program is calling up my dialler all the time?
I'm using Zone Alarm. I've just switched to "Never dial"--I'll watch for a while to see what happens.
(Aargh) Funny. 'Been using computers for ten years--even built several, and though I knew at least the basics, but I guess there's no end even to the basics. I thought that once you "disconnected" via the little "two monitors" icon in the systray, you were, in fact, disconnected.
Not so sure however, about Zone Alarm doing it's job. I'm still trying to remove the last vestiges of a browser hijacker that had me by my little round ones for two weeks!
("Aragh". I know how you feel!)
Thanks for all the advice, Phrixos
