Hi. I just installed the juno isp for my friend on xp pro, and i noticed that when i boot up the pc, it attempts to dial to connect by itself. It's a program that does it..it automatically opens..on the taskbar button it says 'connecting' and it has like a purple lookin icon kinda like a megaphone or something. It's really annoying..we cancel it, then it pops up again. help!

What programs are being run at Startup? Some of them may be set to dial in to check something.

Take a look at this thread , modem auto dialing, which may give you ideas on what is the culprit.

If it is not ZoneAlarm, then post the Startup log that I refer to in the other thread.
