Dial-up conn. box and Norton

I have win98 and Norton 2003. Recently the dial-up connection box has been appearing every time I start the computer. I've also noticed that not until I cancel it, does the Norton icon appear in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (what is that toolbar called?). Any ideas???

Yes, Norton is trying to update itself.

Check the norton options and untick the one for automatic updates and you should see a difference.

Still got problems. I unchecked the auto live update, but every time I boot up the DU conn box still comes up. I click cancel repeatedly and eventually it goes and the Norton icon appears. I open the Norton window and live update is ticked, at this stage it says "refreshing" and after about 20 seconds the live update changes to disabled. During this time I continually have to cancel the DU conn box. Once live update has changed to disabled the DU box does not come back.

I hope your solution has worked for Kegsy, because it has certainly sorted my pc out !
I was just about to download my own plea for help having tried everything that a search through the last years postings has produced when I spotted this one.
Many thanks again.

Thanks, sicknote, I followed your advice in your 2nd para, that works, but now Norton is disabled when I start up so I’ve got to remember to enable it before I go online. Come to think of it surely there should be some way of Norton being automatically enabled as soon as I dial up and disabling once I go offline, this would made life a lot simpler. I haven't tried changing my setting from "dial my default connection" to "Dial whenever a network connection is not present" as suggested on the Symantec site, will try it and see what the implications are.

Hi - I also have this box appearing at random,frequent intervals. To prevent it I've also checked "Never dial a connection" but now I have to go to DUN first to establish a connection before being able to access my home page. Does anyone have a solution? I'm using WinMe, Zone Alarm, and McAfee VirusScan with auto updates disabled.
Thanks.
