I am trying to trace a rouge that is trying to connect to the internet on it's own accord.

I once had the address of a website that explained what all the startups listed when using msconfig were and if they were needed, but i have misplaced the URL.

does anyone know of such a site?

no, I use Norton Internet Security.

I Think I have solved the problem, "Real Player" was trying to "phone home". I had previously disabled this but somehow the setting changed.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Hey, great.
I never have Real Player auto start.
Seems to slow things down.
Glad you have it fixed..
