Hi All,
Have a bit of a problem logging in on to internet.
I have a dial-up for one thing and have been using it for a couple of years without any problems until last night. Tried to log in and was able to to see that the connection was good. The only thing is the web page was giving me an error message page and it started to reproduce pages really fast. I've called my isp and there reply was everything on their end was up a running. We checked all my settings to insure a good connection. Then the person had asked me to ping yahoo and the results were good there too. Has anyone seen this before? Some people say it might be a virus or something.

Hi sandblaster18

Don't think its a virus but more likely malware known as a Browser Hijack Object (BHO). Since you are using dialup, its very important that you disconnect your phone line from your computer anytime you are not online until you get this cleaned up.

What is your OS? What is your anti-virus? Do you have any spyware programs? Have you disabled install on demand?

If you could post a list of your running processes we might be able to see whats going on.
