    Using Windows98. When I am not logged on to the internet, about every 5 minutes, the dial-up connection screen pops up. How can I stop this from happenning?

      You’ve got something trying to reach the internet every 5 mins, and you’ve got your settings set to “auto-connect.”

      You can either figure out what’s trying to get to the net and disable it, or go into your IE settings under “Connection” and set it for “Never dial a connection.”

      (At least that’s where it is on Win2K – I think it’s the same on 98)

      As the other answer said something wants to report somewhere.

      Update your antivirus and do a scan.

      Download Ad-ware and Spybot and see what you have on your drive. You might be suprised.

      Good Luck Lee
