    I have downloaded and installed some critical updates for
    my windowsME operating system, now when my computer starts
    up my dial up connection window pops up to dial up to the
    internet, I have to press cancel several times for it to
    stop (the window keeps popping back up). Also whenever I
    right click on an item in my taskbar, desktop, or even in
    windows explorer my dial up connection window comes up and
    the normal little window that would pop up doesn't come
    until I click cancel on the dial up connection. I am
    thinking that a setting got changed somewhere but for the
    life of me I can find it, any ideas?

    You do not mention all the gory details so this may not be your problem but
    you may like to check into

    "Internet Options"

    "Advanced tab"

    scroll down to the bottom of the list and see if

    "Check for publisher's certificate of revocation"

    is ticked. If it is untick it.

    This cleared the problem for me sometime back, otherwise make sure that you
    are not suffering spyware or a program that is set for automatic updates.
