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?

Thank you,


Bob Starnes

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!
