I have just bought a new computer with xp prof
It also had norton anti this and that which I have deleted.
It also had a games cahnnel which I have deleted.
Trouble is, every ten minutes it opens up the window for the dial up connection to the internet.

How can I find which programmme is doing this and stop it?

many thanks

Run Internet Explorer .

Then go to tools/internet tools/connections.

See if the option under dialup is on never dial a connection. If it isnt change it to this. Then OK.

this is irrelevan to your problem, but when u say "deleted" do you mean uninstalled, or literally deleted? if the latter, this can cause big problems later on, especially with companies like norton with their stupid product activation etc

Why would you want to "delete" NAV?

Do you have a firewall and any antivirs running?

Zone alarm (free) is a good firewall

AVG (free) is a good antiviirs

Why would you want to "delete" NAV? Probably because it is a resource hogger, and a lot of people want to use those resources elsewhere.
