Dial Up Connectin Box
« on: October 18, 2006, 08:28:15 AM »
Suddenly every few seconds the internet explorer dial up connection box keeps popping up on my screen.  Iclick the X or I click cancel and it continues to pop up every few seconds.  What can I do to make it stop popping up?

What is the dial-up adress and what have Adaware and Spybot S&D found so far?

Did they remove what they find and have you scanned in safe mode?

      Do not allow it to dial, your next telephone bill may be too big to jump over.
