Auto IE DialUp on Windows Boot Up

  Herman1 17:37 03 Jun 03

Using IE5 and Outlook Express 6 on Windows 98SE. Recently got hit by th [email protected] virus. This has been eliminated by a fix from the Symantec website. However, each time windows boots up it starts with the Dial Up screen automatically and before Norton Internet Security starts. I have tried to stop the problem by looking in the System Config Utility but there is nothing there.

Anyone have any ideas.

It is probably caused by a program looking for updates or new versions.

Have a look at the Startup Tab in msconfig and the StartUp folder in Start, Programs, StartUp. Also check if Windows is looking for updates in Scheduled Tasks, or was it called Windows Update.

Then examine the Tools, Preferences, Options or similar wording in each of these programs for "look for updates daily" or similar.

If I remember correctly Liveupdate (Norton) does this. It will be there somewhere.
