Hi There
My pc wants to connect to the internet everytime I start up. Im sure its outlook express that is trying to connect. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to stop it.
Thankyou

If you are sure it is Outlook Express (why?) then in OE Tools/Options, General tab, set "If my computer is not connected at this time" to Do not connect.

Im sure its oe. because the dial up box that appears is the same one that appears when I start oe. A different dial up box appears when I use my internet shortcut which is on my desktop. I already have the do not connect box checked im afraid.
Cheers.
