modem dialing problems

By spudman4 ·
I have windows me on my computer. I'm on a network with two other computers on it. The server has Xp on it. But my problem is when ever I start up windows it forces the modem to dial out. It's very annoying. There's 2 files I'm alittle suspicous of ones called "InternetSpeed" the other is "Iou" I've found the Iou one but I'm unable to locate the internetspeed one. I was hoping someone would know what this problem is. Also I've went into my bios and put everything back to default but that did not fix it. Thanks for reading this.

Dail out

by Bagmaster50 In reply to modem dialing problems

Making changes in the bios will not solve the problem. It's more likely the connection settings in the options for internet explorer. Open IE and click on tools/internet options/connections. In the connections page see if it's set to always dail thedefault dailup connection to connect. If it is change it to never dail a connection.
Also see if any of your programs are set to automactically check for updates on a set timer. Disable automatic update for all programs.Also disable the load with windows feature for programs like msn messenger.
Another item to take a look at is the dailup connection it's self. If you have it set to save password and auto connect, it'll dail out on it's own. Uncheck the auto connect feature.
