Internet Connection keeps popping up on desktop

  Severn Bore 16:00 03 Dec 2003

My Intenet Connection window keeps popping up on my desktop without prompting. This has only started to happen within the past week or so. Before then I had no problem. I have checked my connection settings in both Internet Explorer and Outlook Express and they seem OK.
Any ideas please?

Mine started doing it after a download of 'JetAudio'.
Haven't found out how to disable it again.

if you are on dial up go to ctrl panel internet options/connections/ and move tick to never dial a connection, but much more likely is an infection with a 'dialler' suggest you d/load adaware and spybot from click here

If your using XP, system restore can often cure this here

Many programmes can encourage this as they look for updates on a regular basis. Adobe and Zone Alarm are only two. Usually possible to disable this nonsense by selecting "search for updates manually" within the problem software's options
