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
