I am not computer savy, so please bear with me. I recently changed my ISP and after I did this I have had this re-occurring problem where the computer keeps dialing up my local Internet phone number over and over.
I have a Dell with Windows XP Home. Over on the Dell forum someone told me to do the following but I am not sure even what to do with the info:
Open Task Manager and see what's running when you first start your computer. Leave it open and wait for new entries to pop up. That may tell you something. Common culprits are MS Messenger and Java. For disabling Messenger, see http://www.theregist...nt/4/24708.html. For turning off Java update (which turned out to be my problem) see http://www.neuber.co...usched.exe.html. Good luck.
I also just purchased Norton's 2005 virus software and I use lavasoft's free
Adware finder on a regular basis. Can anyone can please help me rid my computer of this annoying problem?
