Dial up connection box popping up...

  barryoneoff.co.uk 23:55 01 Mar 07

This is driving me crazy. For the last two days every five minutes the dial up connection box pops up on screen for a second or two then disappears. I have an always on connection.

Any ideas?

Open Control Panel - Network Connections, look for the offending dial-up connection and hit delete.

If this does not work you may have picked up a nasty rogue dialler and will need to clear it using anti virus software or another removal tool. If it still persist then try and see what it is trying to connect too and post here...

a rogue dialer. It's simply trying to dial my BT Yahoo connection which I'm already connected to. That's the puzzling part.

Thanks anyway.

connections box, select, "Never dial a connection"

It may be some piece of software, that doesn't realise you have an always on, is trying to "dial home" for an update check.

Good luck,
