Strange entry in my "Connect to" box.

If I click on start and then "Connect to" it shows that my dialup is Metronet and Tiscali and there is one shown as XXXServer.If I hover the cursor over the xxxserver it shows it as Intel(R) 536EP modem. None of my dialups are connected to the phone line as my BB is via wired ethernet cable. Can anyone explain what this xxx is since I have no knowledge of putting it there and my second PC which has all the same entries does not have it. My os is xphome sp2. Many thanks.

Sounds like a dialer changed your dial-up settings. Update and run your anti-spyware products.

Hi Brundle. I have run all my antispyware progs and my AV prog, all of which show nothing. The metronet and tiscali ISPs are my normal ones and there have never been any others to change. Can I delete that one as its not doing anything with the modem disconnected?

Hi, yes, you can delete that one. If you really did need to get it back it is easy to do so.

Merry Christmas
