tx for the suggestions, Larry. I've uninstalled Outlook Express and do not have active desktop in play (as far as I can tell from Display Properties). Still, the machine dials on at its pleasure (and not mine, since it's my only phone line - hehe).
I know this is going to turn out to be some dumb oversight on my part, but I'm perplexed so far. The machine will just dialup at approx. 5 min intervals.
- 2 Win98se machines w/ critical updates and service packs installed - neither with Outlook or active desktop.
- ICS over TCP network
- umm, everything with latest drivers and no apps installed yet (save WinZip, TweakUI, AMD drivers)
- Lucent WinModem (MDP7800U w/ 539 drivers)
- EtherLAN II NIC
- TNT video
- Aureal soundcard
