Win98. Windows update is dialing up my ISP every five minutes.
How can I stop this behavior ?

Check your task scheduler and see if there is an item in there to dial up at regular intervals. By default it is listed in additional items, but I am not sure with a modem it is set as a scheduled task.

Hi Hominy

Sorry, I think I got the wrong end of the stick here so I've deleted the message that was here.

Thanks for the help.

I had been unable to get the latest 'critical update' so I went through the procedures in the Knowledge Base. I guess windows modified the scheduled task. I certainly did not set it to try every five minutes.
