    Howdy folks,
    I have been up to one annoyance for the last days; dialing up when windows is still starting. I really tried to find out what is causing that stupidity but finally I have to confess I failed. Start up folder, programs which are running, registry.....no viruses....everything seems to be alright. ZA is not blocking any program attempting to connect on net either. So I need an advice, Thank you.

    Hi Krusty,

    First, a couple of background questions (the obvious ones, which I'm sure you have thought of already, but I have to ask ;) ).

    1. Have you installed or upgraded any software lately?

    2. How is your dial-up networking connectoid set, especially in the IE options screen (see image below)? If you set it to "Never dial a connection..." and reboot, does it still happen?

    3. When was your last virus/trojan scan, and with what tool?

    4. Are you still running Zone Alarm 3.1.395? Have you read the thread regarding the ZA auto-dial on bootup bug? See it here:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=3775

    Let us know the answers to these questions if you can. I'm sure people are looking over you Startuplist even as we speak. :cool:

    Best Wishes,
    LowWaterMark

    Hi LowWaterMark, and Thanx for your fast reply :)

    It really seems to be ZA bug .....I have been searching for the all settings and all possible trojans.....found nuttin; I use "AVG" and "Ants, Anti-Trojan". Yes indeed, now I think of it, the annoyance appeared just right after I updated ZA but I couldn´t figure out it just might be good old ZA :p. In that case I might better let it be this way it is, as long as it is not causing any other problems. It can not get connected on net anyway; password is in my head only.

    Thank You again LowWaterMark

    -Ari

    Well, hopefully Zone Labs will get that fix out soon. I know they have been working on it for a while now.

    Many people have found that if they set the "Never dial a connection" button, it stops ZA dialing on bootup. You may want to try that if you haven't already, even though you seem to have it under control... :cool:

    Best Wishes,
    LowWaterMark

    Hi Krusty,

    Could you do me a favor?
    Pleas download BHODemon from: http://www.definitivesolutions.com/bhodemon.htm
    Run it and select this one:
    (no name) - C:\OHJELM~1\ODIGO\BIN\ODIGOBHO.DLL - {6754A456-BAD9-11D4-93D3-00B0D03A2F91
    click details and more details and let me know what it says.
    If you do not know to which program it belongs try disabling it in the Details screen. If you do know, I would like to know as well.
    Thanx in advance,

    Pieter

    Hello Pieter and Tony

    Odigo indeed, I use that IM occasionally, nice feature to find people all over the world, but it´s a spyware I know. The folder Cydoor, Adcache. I used to launch "Spyblocker" as Odigos best friend; it really blocked ads from the server. Ok here´s the details.....By the way, I like very much this BHO feature. Not dialing anymore when starting up, I just disabled autodialing.

    Thnx Krusty, for providing that info.
    This BHO was not on Tony´s list yet.
    I´m guessing it will be after the next update ;)

    Regards,

    Pieter

    LOL, how funny, definitivesolutions.com uses leader.linkexchange.com services and my proxy blocked the banner. Ziff Davis uses doubleclick services :D
    Why is that I wonder, blocking those ads makes my browser jamming sometimes.....bad services....

    -Ari

    besides Ziff D has been spamming me some time

    Now I typed rubbish :oops: It wasn´t Ziff Davis .....but : http://www.pcmag.com/
