Dial-up and broadband

By andrea46 ·
I have DSL, and I am running Windows XP Pro. For the last two weeks, my dial-up connection dialog box appears, offering the opyion to connect, even while my broadband connection is active. I keep setting the IE option to "never dial a connection", but something keeps resetting this to "dial whenever an internet connection is not present". It is not a big deal, but it is a nuisance. Any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks

Virus alert

by mjd420nova In reply to Dial-up and broadband

This sounds like a virus I found on one users computer. Right after they visited a porn site, this dialup message appeared. It was a virus that was inadvertently downloaded to them and it was trying to call home. A restore to the previous day cleared the problem and all was normal again. Pretty funny though, they had no modem card in the machine.
