1. What version of avast do you have, exactly?
2. Please start the avast antivirus main application, open the manu (e.g. by right-clicking anywhere in the 'Blue Panel'), select Settings, go to 'Updates (Connections)' and verify that the 'I only use a dial-up connection' option is checked.

Thanks

1. I have version 4.1 free for home use.
2. yes the "I always use a dial up connection" box is ticked in the settings.
Weird! In general I think avast is gnarly by the way, and am very grateful for it  especially being free! :D

Vlk is right. But take care: some updates - almost in the past - has "changed" this option and the sympthoms were there again... I have to choose the option 'I only use a dial-up connection' more than one time... Maybe - I'm not sure - this is a bug that 'resets' the configurations after an update.  8)

Thanks Bruce, I'll keep that in mind, having said that , IE has been behaving itself lately, maybe that's because there's been no updates(?!)  ;)

Hey Eva :), I think it doesnt have to do anything with the availability of updates. If it behaves it's probably because you made the change to the settings - it should really help. ;)

So, could you explain why this happens in Windows 98 with quite a frequency. I have my settings stored with a password but when a program update was performed the IE option turn back to "Never dial a connection"....
I'm not crazy Vlk, this happens indeed  >:(
