I have developed a problem within the last week that is very troubling. All of a sudden, my computer starts dialing up my Internet providers phone number all by itself. I can be doing nothing, watching the desktop, and all of a sudden it just starts dialing. More often than not, whenever I click on ANY icon, it will start dialing the same number. It reads, Connecting to port then it starts dialing the access number. Once connected, nothing comes up on the screen.
I have Norton Anti-virus and Zone Alarm Pro installed on my computer. I also have Spybot, and have run virus checks every day. Nothing shows up as a virus. A week ago I installed a dial-up accelerator but I am not sure if that s the cause. I also noticed that the Zone Alarm Icon at the bottom of my screen keeps "blinking" even though there seems to be no traffic.
Any suggestions or thoughts?
