network connections

  nogga 19:27 06 Feb 2004

When my computer boots up and the desktop loads, I keep getting a pop up box with the message:
Network Connection.
you or a programme have requested information from lockup Which coonection do you want to use. I have two ISP's and there is also an icon in control panel with the header LAN or high speed internet and under the icon is
1394 connection
1394 Net Adapter
Am I right in thinking that being enabled, it is causing the pop up. Should it be disabled ?.

I don't know what it is therefore. I have disable it on my computer since it is likely to reduce performance as the OS will keep checking on it to see its state.

I wouldn't have thought that this was causing a pop up. Since it wants to connect to I would have expected it to be something to do with a zonealarm firewall.

Why the 2 posts on same topic ?

thanks leading MNMs, the two posts were a miatake, I didnt thing the first one had been submitted. I use Zonealarm. so you could be right.

thanks [email protected]@m,
Its a bit too complicated for me to understand.
Anyway, Ive had a poke around and I have got rid of it now, so hopefully everything is hunky dory.
Ive run a complete virus scan on AVG and nothing found.

1394 is a FireWire connection, if you haven't got a connection on that port then disable it anyway.

thanks yokel, I thought the number looked familiar, I do have a firewire port which I use with my digital cam-corder. I'll not disable it in that case. Thanks again.
