View Full Version : dial up connection box

I am experiencing problems with the above, the box appears whilst machine is still loadingup from start, & once everything is loaded, I push on cancel & it keeps on coming back, I've tried various things to stop it but it just keeps on keeping on.
I'm wondering if Mcafee & or Symantec antivirus apps. have anything todo with this, I'm using IE6 with sp1, thanks in advance for any help.

Most likely is your anti-virus bringing up the connection.

The easiest way to stop it is to go to IE Tools/Internet Options
Click on the Connections Tab
Select - Never Dial a Connection

Create a shortcut for your dialup connection and add it to your desktop and use this to connect with when you want to dialup to your ISP.

Could also be spyware.

Download and install Adaware or SPybot (or both :)) and run to remove any spyware.

Did this start to happen soon after installing NAV??

I have had 3 machines (out of probably over 50 NAV installs) do this straight after the NAV instal (usually NAV 2002). Uninstalling NAV and reinstalling it has soloved all cases.

Good luck
