    Restore point before you were infected. If you know the date.

    If not then you have to run a program called msconfig. It can be run via the run command.

    Check under startup and under boot for anything suspicious.

    Thanks for the reply. I think the date was the 24th but Im not sure how to Restore so I will have to run msconfig.

    I tried going into the msconfig and finding the problem but was unable to find it.

    I havent set any restore points so I couldnt do it that way either.

    Is there any other way? :confused:

    Two suggestions:

    Go to the Symantec web site and check the removal instructions for the virus that you had to make sure that you actually did fully remove it.

    Download Ad-Aware and see if it finds any spyware on your computer, you may have something other than the virus that is trying to dial out.

    Ok, Do you have dial up, or ppoe(dial in dsl). Also, if you have a program that needs an internet connection that starts up automatically, and your internet options ( in IE< tools>internet options>connections> is set to dial when one is not present or dial my default, your sytem will automatically dial to connect that program.

    Changed it to never dial a connection..

    Hope this helps..

    Let us know XP brotha>>>

    You don't need to make restore points yourself, XP does it automaticaly if you don't turn it off. Just select the date and restore!

    ifyou installed ANYTHING you set a restore point(for future refrence it does it auto) and unless specifically disabled it does auto set restore points every so often
    and in msconfig look in startup tab and proccess(if you know what your doing leave all microsoft proccesses since i dunno wich you will need but look for suspicious ones by unknown
    try sys restore 1st
