xp & internet

  eccomputers 23:18 09 May 2003

I hope someone can help me with this very annoying problem....

2 machines running xp pro sp1, ethernet through
8 port router for future expansion. BT pay as you go using modem (internal) on one machine and
this is shared to the other pc. Dont need broadband as only email collection/sending is required. All works a damn treat except for one thing...
The remote pc keeps dialling up the internet at 5 minute intervals and there is absolutely nothing running to cause this. I have disabled norton auto update, and protection but it still does it. Is there a known problem with xp that does this? I have turned off remote support and auto updates too, no effect.

Many thanks

Try downloading ZoneAlarm (you can get it on a 30 day free trial), every time a program tries to access the internet, zonealarm will flash up a yes/no requestor box which shows which program is trying to dial out.
