Run your Adaware and see if you have spywares...if you don't have it search for 
it and install it. Also to prevent or minimize any future problems open 
IE>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab>uncheck both "Enable Install on Demand 
(Internet Explorer)" and "Enable Install On Demand (Other)". Also in Internet 
Options>Security tab>click Trusted Sites icon>click Trusted... button>if you 
see names/addresses of websites there that you didnt put like aol or gator, 
delete them. Also click Restricted sites icon>click Trusted... button>add sites 
you know that are sponsors of spywares. You can start with 
http://www.gator.com. Others here might suggest a few others. This is for your 
future protection.

I am running WXP with a Dial-UP connection. My computer is randomly
connecting to the internet all on its own. The other day I found "Date
Manager" installed and I didn't download it. Is there any way I can
determine which program is doing the connecting. The last time this
happened to me I had a virus. I am running McAfee V7 Professional and it
does not detect any known virus. I also ran "Stinger" and no virus was
detected. The only way I can prevent this is to turn off the computer when
I am not using it.
Does anyone know what is going on?
