    Hi folks

    An annoying windows feature? Anyone struck this before? If I am playing a music CD in my CD-ROM drive (not using software - just pushing play on front of the drive), the CD will stop when I connect to my ISP. Paranoia suggests that the drive's contents may be monitored by the system and sent... anywhere? Is Mr Gates really interested in what I listen to? But that is being to paranoid. I am using Win 98 SE and Internet Explorer 6 on rather old but trusty AMD K6 400 with 196 Mb ram and an external 56K modem over phone line (cable too exxy here).

    Welcome to TSG!!!

    What you are getting there is an interuption in your music because of the modem initalizing. When the modem picks up to dial out to you ISP it kind of "takes over" your audio thus making the CD seem to cut out.

    This is usually pretty normal behavior and should not be a big deal...
