Everytime I re-boot my dial-up window comes on screen and imediately start dialing my ISP. When I cancel it it sometimes comes rite back and redials. This is extremely annoying. Any Ideas on how to fix this mess?:(

Go to Start->Run and type "msconfig" then click OK. Go to the startup tab and see if your ISP's executable is in there for some reason.

That's the only reason I can think of that your computer would run your ISP's program on startup.

You'll get better support in a Windows (??) forum. What version do you have?

Anyways, it likely something in th startup is trying to connect to the internet. Here's the first step - go to IE and to Tools -> Internet Options and Select the connections tab. Select the middle option, or the Never Dial option if you have a ISP Dialer on your desktop that you don't might launching everytime you wnat to go on the internet.

Once thats done go here to download Adaware, Spybot, and HijackThis: http://spywareinfo.com/downloads.php?cat=sp#det

go here for a free online virus scan: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

You'll need to update Adaware and Spybot before you scan and fix any problems - you'll see the update when you launch the programs. Fix all problems they find. Next (optional - if the problem is fixed) launch Hijackthis and create a log - post it here - do NOT fix anything it lists yet.
