We run a 56K modem within a WIN 98 system. Connects fine, runs smooth initially. After a few minutes of normal operation, the modem seems to open up, and is "receiving" data constantly. This slows down performance in other areas substantially.
We have recently changed modems, to a USR 56K, with the same end result. At times, the constant receiving will cease, and performance returns to normal, at least temporarily.
Any thoughts on potential cause?

Sounds like either a virus or spyware on your computer.
Might run a virus scanner and/or visit the follow site for possible spyware problems:

Thank you Bob!
Your recommendation re a spyware check has done the trick. What a relief to again obtain a clear connection.
Happy holidays, and thank you for taking a moment to assist!
