I have Windows XP, access the internet via an ISP, 56k modem. Every 4-5 hours or so, if I have not rebooted manually, I will get disconnected from the Internet. No big deal. But then, I have more than one window opening that are all attempting to reconnect/re-dial to get me back online-all at the same time. I have to cancel this, end that...each and every time. Seems just different looking windows for the same thing. One says Dial Up Connection, another Network Connections, etc. Then I get phonebook cannot be opened, as it was already dialed. I have no idea how this all started, is just annoying more than anything, as I have to deal with all these things opening, instead of the single dial up window that opens when I first go online, or if I am getting online manually, not the computer getting it done for me.
How do I trouble shoot this problem and find out what is doing this and then stop it, so just one thing dials back up for me after a disconnect?? Will be great to not deal with this any longer. Your help is very appreciated, Thanx! parrotplay :thumbsup:

hello parrotplay, I not sure this will work ,but perhaps you could try uninstalling and reinstalling your isp software. Perhaps somewhere during the install you'll be able to clean up all those option glitches.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
