I have another computer I've had in for a couple of days. I'm having trouble determining what is causing this proble. Every time the guy's wife logs into her account the modem starts to dial a connection. I'm guessing it's Earthlink but I'm not sure. He said that this had been an annoyance for him for some time. It also seems to be trying to send out e-mail. I don't know why it keeps doing this. I notice that the AVG e-mail scanner starts to run at about the same time. I've scanned it with AVG and Sophos. I have the latest definitions for both. I've also run Spybot, MS AntiSpyware and Ad-Aware. All are up to date. But it still seems to want to dial out. After contacting Earthlink they recommend that I uninstall and reinstall Earthlink. I do and it still doesn't work. I've been looking and looking for something malicious or just a setting or piece of software that may be causing it but I still haven't found anything. If it helps I could post a HijackThis log. Which I've run already along with CWShredder. I've also run ewido, I believe it's called F-stop a rootkit scanner, and pretty much every other free utility I can think of. Any ideas?//Mode edit: Moved this topic from Windows XP/NT/2000/2003 to the
more appropriate forum.
