Hi,
I have a Dell Dimension desktop running Windows XP with Verizon DSL and also have AOL. The first 2 problems just started recently. The third has been happeneing for a while now. Here they are:

1 - on startup, a dial-up connection box appears with my name and password already in the boxes and asks if I want to connect. I just X out of it because I always use AOL. That was always enough (just xing out of it once). Now it pops up evryminute or two and I have to keep deleting it. I went to the settings box in the dial-up box but don't want to change anything unless I know what to do.

2 - also on start up, the AOL sign-in screen comes up automatically which never happened before. Now I should mention that we have a couple (or a few) versions of AOL on the computer because I had to reload it in the past. The AOL screen that comes up is not the one we want to use. I X out of that and click the icon for the one I want to use and it will take about 50 clicks (literally) of the mouse before it comes up and then the PC runs a bit slow. I'm baffeled.

3 - and, (quick background) I paid for and downloaded a program called Speedupmypc and used it once or twice. This one's been happening for a while now.
At startup, a grey box appears with a red X and reads "PSysProbe:: update, Section6, Section 6.1, Invalid argument to date encode." Should I uninstall this and if so, how? Or are the three connected in some way? If anyone can help me out here, I'd be so appreciative. Thanks again.
-Joe
