Gary, you'd do better to post here as everyone could see your answers and possible help out.
So it happens with both IE and OE closed.
You also told me you're running Win 98..

1) download a copy of either spybot or adaware and let it clean the spyware from your system.

if its still doing it then

2) open explorer, tools, internet options, connections tab and select "never dial a connection".

yea...i guess it does add an extra step. You have to doubleclick on your connection manually to make it dial, then open the browser.


I have my system set up this way because my kids are always downloading and installing some form of spyware or another and this keeps my machine from dialing out 24/7 until I spybot it again.
