How to disable Dialer Autostart

When I open Adobe Acrobat, it wants to start a browser; in doing so, it starts the dialer.  I know there is a way to disable the "AutoStart" feature, but I don't know how to do it... appreciate any help...

IF you are using Netscape, you may want to check the following registry key.


This is how it is setup for Autodial ON

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"EnableAutodial"=hex:01,00,00,00

If this is how it looks, change it to this...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"EnableAutodial"=hex:00,00,00,00

Let me know if this helps,
Craig

If you are using IE, go to Start/ Settings/ Control Panel/ Internet Options / Connections and change the Dial up setting within there.

Won't that stop the AutoStart for the dialer in all situations?

Craig:  I don't see any options where you describe them... I don't think it's as simple as that... for some stupid reason, when I various programs that use IE (I don't personally use it), the dialer starts... I understand there is a setting somewhere, I just don't know where.  Also, I don't care if the dialer NEVER autostarts... that would be fine with me...
