    Occasionally, like right now, a small window appears, with the title "TEST". There is one line of text the says "State Disconnect!" and an "OK" button. I think it happens only while I'm browsing, but I'm not sure. I've looked through my running processes, using Norton System Information, and I can't find anything. <CTRL>-<ALT>-<DEL> doesn't show any likely candidates. I'm currently searching for files containing the string "Disconnect!" but I don't have very high hopes.

    Any Ideas?

    Not really sure. When it happens are disconnected
    from the internet, I'm thinking maybe a disconnect
    when you are on the internet and are idle for a
    period of time.
    Could try ctrl+alt+delete when the screen shows
    up and it might give you some idea's.

    Thanks! After I posted, the search found the file containing the string, "Disconnected!". It is something called "PCTVOICE". I'm chasing that down now. It gets started at boot, from the registry, and is running now. Properties tells me it's from a company called PCTel. It's in the Windows directory and has a compressed version in Windows\options\cabs. I'm going to use msconfig to turn it off and see what happens.
