Dail-up at Windows start-up

  Digital 11:47 04 Jun 2003

Recently my PC has started to dial out as soon as Windows (98SE)starts. I can stop the actual dialling by unchecking the Automatic box but how do I find out what is causing the dial-up window to appear?

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. By unchecking items in the Start Up list (Start, Run, msconfig) one by one I tracked it down to something called SystemMScvb. I had two copies of this in the Start Up list, by unchecking both I got rid of the unwanted Dial Up. Don't know what SystemMScvb is or where it came from, does anyone know?

Thanks Gaz 25, my virus checker hadn't been updated when this virus got in but I still don't know how it got in 'cos I haven't opened any dodgy attachments.
