Keeps trying to access internet

  WYN BACH 16:35 23 Nov 2003

Everytime I try and do something on my PC it constantly tries to acces AOL. This is regardless if my phone line is connected or not. It's really annoying because I'm constantly closing down AOL connection windows.Any ideas?

Is your tools/internet options/connections, 'never dial a connection' checked?

WYN BACH, try a thorough virus scan and also run AdAware click here or SpyBot click here.

Right click the AOL icon on the tool bar and check
don't use any auto start options.

are you using any apps such as seti? These can be set to connect automatically, which could explain it.
