    Upon start up or when opening an existing file, my computer is automatically connecting itself to the internet. I have run CWShredder, Spybot S&D, installed all of the critical windows updates, and performed an online virus scan from housecall, but none of these have cured the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is my HJT log. Thanks in advance.

    i can tell you what happened to me and you can try it.go to internet options then to connections and then unclick always dial my default connectins and then click on never dial connections. this is what i did when i was having the same problem but it might be different for you.

    Thanks for the input jerry1967. Unfortunantly, this doesn't seem to be the problem with for me. Any other input you (or anybody for that matter) has on this problem or if anybody sees any problems with my HJT log, please let me know. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I assume you have a dial up connection.

    I've found that a few things that initiate an Internet connection on start-up.
    1) Windows Critical Updates (you don't appear to have this on)
    2) Norton Anti-virus - Live Update (Make sure you turn live update off if you have dial-up. ...but put a shortcut (to live update) on your desktop and run this manually once a week.
    3) Automatic Program updates
    You appear to have a few.
    O4 - Startup: RealDownload.lnk = C:\Program Files\Real\RealDownload\REALDOWNLOAD.EXE

    What I've done in the past is run "MSCONFIG" (Start / Run / MSCONFIG) and selectively turned off things (Startup) and then rebooted and checked the results.

    If you are unfamiliar with the msconfig... indicate it here... and someone will help guide you.

    Basically any program that loads up that requires an internet connection could be your culprit, So think along the lines of what is starting up that wants axxess to the net. GO from there
