I am on Win98 got Free ZoneAlarm and Anti-Virus, how have I managed to get programs added to communications folder ISDN etc I am on Dial up, I have also had different networking protocols added to Networking without me doing anything. Which I have removed. Any IDEA's
The Internet is a very dangerous place and you need a firewall even on dial-up. I would also suggest increasing the security settings of your browser and being very selective about the places you visit and which scripts, activeX controls etc you allow to run.
Sounds like a virus to me, I have had some trouble recently with a folder on the 'programs' menu going missing (the folder contained shortcuts to the antivirus and firewall programs...) The programs still existed but the paths had disappeared, this happened at the same time as AVG discovered and dealt with a virus.
PS I posted a thread other week about the two little tv's downloading after page was loaded both in Opera and today I have had it with Netscape7 I finished pressing the stop button in ZoneAlarm to stop the activity
