Been with AOL since 1995 and haven't experience a lot of the horror stories that I've read about. Anyhow, Earthlink sends me a CD with a promotion offer. Here are two things that bother me and am not sure if they are good or bad: When I completed connection to Earthlink then Zonealarm asked me if I would allow "InstallShield update service agent" to access the internet. Never heard of it before and didn't allow access. Anyone know what this is about? Secondly, I went to dial-up networking in control panel and there was a dial-up profile connection that had been created for the IP address or Host name of 192.168.0.1 which appears to be a connection to some sort of shopping something or other. Anyone know about this one? Note: I did not use it for connection but the connect for it kept popping up whenever I started my computer so I checked it out some, but would prefer more info on it.
