Modem dials whenever it wants!

  Si258 16:37 18 Jun 2004

My modem starts to dial up whenever it feelslike it, but only on three out of my four user profiles. On my own login, it only dials up when I request it. However, on my wifes, my daughters and my sons logins, it starts to dial up as soon as Internet Explorer is opened. I have set the modem dialling properties and the internet explorer properties to exactly the same for all logins. What is going wrong? Anyone help?

Could be that a programme is trying to automatically update or look in msconfig start up to see if there's anything in there likely to want to dial. Do their accounts get swept with ad-aware and spybot? HTH TR

Different settings etc are loaded for each user you need to check for dialers and other spyware.
Only need to do it from one user though.

Anti Spyware :-
Adaware click here
Spybot S&D click here Spywareblaster click here

Adaware and spybot both check and remove syware blaster prevents further intrusion.
