I am runnning WINXP and was trying to gety Opera to make the dial-up work by checking out the dial-up preferences under "Network Connections" "Advanced". When I completed the dialogue box that appeared asking for the area code, the following box pops up:

You (or a program) have requested information from tigrajungle.dyndns.ws. Which connection do you want to use?

I clicked on cancel and the same box pops up but with any of the following addresses.
oslo2.no.eu.undernet.org
architect2003.no-ip.info
graz.at.eu.undernet.org
62.103.177.91
princeton.nj.us.undernet.org
us.undernet.org
eu.undernet.org
elsene.be.eu.undernet.org.

What does this all mean?

I am not sure what all that means but undernet.org appears to be related to some kind of IRC server.

It could be benign if you use IRC programs but to be on the safe side I would give some spyware detection programs a run. Go to the forum's Spyware FAQ (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=41858&message=220430&q=faq+%238b#220430) and run through the first part "01 - Checking for and removing spyware".

Post back with your results. :-)
