On one of my limited XP (Home) user accounts, but only one, something is trying to connect to the Internet using my old dialup program for Netscape ISP. I have recently switched to MSN DSL and this started happening several weeks later. Is there an XP function or utility to identify what is trying to connect? I also have Norton Internet Security 2005. Is there a Norton function or utility to identify what is trying to connect?


Thanks in advance.

If your resident firewall has a packet log, you could check there.
