Hi, Every now and then, including to-night, when I could not get on the web or get connected to my e-mails, I find my settings have altered.
To-night they had altered to 'never dial a connection'. I have Zone Alarm Pro. AVG.and Spybot and according to them, no viruses
By the way, after running 'Everest,home edition it tells me I have no battery and I have certainly not changed one since getting the computer in 1998!

The battery may be about to give out if it's not already dunn so. Do you leave your computer on 24/7 as you would not know that the battery had pegged it if you did

Woodchip, No I do not leave it 24/7. It gets switched on at about 5.00pm and off again about midnight. Some times its not switched on for days.

It sounds like your battery voltage has gone so low its not registering, 7 years is pretty good going for a battery.
