I am using Windows 98se and the past few weeks while I am working offline the "Work Offline" box keeps poping up. Sometimes several appear and I have to reboot the system. If I attempt the shift-ctrl-del key to end the box the system just crashes and reboots.

I have searched the books and thought it might be an IE problem but still have no clue whats causing this box to popup.

Suggestion welcome...but don't tell me to get Windoes XP as I have that on another system and its has its querks also!

Thankyou.

You might have something trying to connect to the internet while you are offline. It may not start an internet connection if it sees cached links.

In Internet Options delete your entire cache, history and offline content.

If you continue to get connection attemps and don't know what is causing it, post a HijackThis scanlog.

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

>> also if you have "active desktop" enabled, disable it. Right click on the Desktop and select "active desktop" > "view as web page". Make sure this is UNchecked.

I don't see any problems there, a couple of things of no real consequence can be "fixed":

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = about:blank

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

With offline content deleted, I would expect you to get a dialup connection the next time; at least then you may be able to see where it is trying to go to.

I don't know why this should be in running processes though:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RPCSS.EXE

http://www.cexx.org/rpc.htm

In Win98 there is a method of disabling this (I've used it) and that is to run regedit

and navigate to:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OLE]

set:

"EnableRemoteConnect"="N"

You're welcome!

I'll mark the thread "Solved" in that case, but be aware this option is also available to you in the Thread Tools menu when appropriate.
