I'm running Windows 2KPro with all critical updates. The system has been behaving itself very well for many months. I use a USB ADSL modem which I configured to *not* connect automatically but to wait for me to ask for a connection. All of a sudden, something has started requesting a connection during the boot sequence. How can I find out what that "something" is? I'm not competent to read debug traces or memory (core) dumps and I'd need *very* detailed instructions even to generate a trace or dump. Is there some sort of software monitor that will tell me that xyz.exe is requesting an Internet connection? I already use the free version of ZoneLabs but its logs don't tell me anything useful.
