It may be that I have caused the problem perhaps using free programmes or similar.
The "connect to" box keeps appearing, on start,shut down, when opening MS Word it comes on three times, and when moving files etc.
I am not a competent computer user (still finding my way about)and would appreciate any help.

Regards.

Sounds like a dialer! Do not venture onto the 'net without protection.

What have you got in the way of firewall, antivirus, etc.?

My sincere thanks to;VoG, Graham, and THE TERMINATOR.

The problem appears to be resolved by using the idea from THE TERMINATOR and enabling the "never dial a connection"

VoG, I have got Adaware Spybot and note your advise.

Graham, I was worried that a dialer might be present but I have got Norton Antivirus and have now got ZoneAlarm.

I wish you all the best for Xmas and the New Year
and thanks again for your help to a relative newcomer to computing
