All of a sudden, as soon as my PC is turned on and gets to Windows desktop, it automatically dials up my internet connection (instead of waiting for me to open IE), and when I do open IE I get "click here". Despite going into registry and altering home page back to Tiscali, next time computer restarts it goes back to searchforit. Any suggestions please?

Go to 'start,search ' and search for 'searchit' when you find it delete it.

Then go to 'start,run'
Type in regedit and click OK when the reg window opens click 'edit' then 'find'type in searchit and click 'find next' delete any instances of searchit that you find when you have finished searching the registry exit.

Go to 'start' 'run' and type in msconfig when the config window opens click on 'startup' and untick any instances of searchit or any reg32 or reg33 entries, exit and restart your computer.

Thanks for the replies, already running Adaware, and trial versions of Spy Remover and Stopper,
have now removed "searchit" references.

PC now starting and still opening Internet connection automatically as soon as startup completed - any suggestions as to how to stop dial up please?

You need to goto Start-type in MSCONFIG- goto Startup tab. Look for something that shouldn't be there. Untick it.

Sorry, Start-Run-type in MSCONFIG.
