I have MSN and lately, when ever I log off, a new window pops up and asks to dial up MSN again. This happens every few seconds and is very annoying. Any idea how to get rid of it?

Thanks guys!

Thanks! That seemed to do it. A friend of mine also suggested that I might have a program that could be causing it (spyware?). I searched a little, but what's the best way to check for that?
