We recently installed a new computer and for some reason it is dialing up our internet connection on its own, randomly. I'll notice that the computer has hooked up to our internet server without anyone being on the computer and without the outlook Express program even being open. I've checked the internet options and have clicked on "never dial an internet connection" We are using NOD virus protection, but it doesn't seem to be the culprit either. This has only started since we installed this different computer. With our other computer we had the same program and nothing has changed with our program. We had a new modem installed but it was doing this before we had it installed. The problem with this happening of course is that it is dial-up internet and no phone calls can get through while the computer is online. Someone told me that it sounds like a virus, although our virus program updates every day and has found nothing.

hmm not ever anti virus or virus scanner detects every thing. try useing a toll called malware bytes and then talk to a hijack team member. but be shure to save your log.

get the malware bytes off download.com (its on the front page)
