I am running Windows XP Media Edition, with full up Dates. Normally I go and switch on the computer
And then may be leave it running for 10 Minuets while I do some thing else, Then I come back and switch on the monitor and find every thing in order, in the past 5 Day’s ive done the above , OK but on 2 of the days
Ive found that my computer has connected to the internet, with out me doing anything.
When Ive looked at the connection it’s seem’s to be my normal ISP dial up phone number, and there seems to be a small amount of traffic, but I can’t see any web site connection..? Or what is using the ISP connection.
I have done several full deep scans with the following programs… to look for dialers Etc ….
ewido 4 ( paid )
Spybot S&D free
Ive also have SpywearBlaster and SpyweraGuard
The only things they found were Tracking Cookies.
And there have been no Dialers found, could it be some thing that ive accidentally done to my Dial up network connections settings…? ( can any one please advise me on the correct settings ) But if so why has the computer only automatically connected to my ISP on two occasions out of Five …? When first switched on…? And not connected evert time it was first switched on,,,,?
As you can see from my above post I am still a Computer ‘newbie’ so any help or advice would be most welcome.
