    Trying to connect (Word 2000)

    Hi,
    This is my first post. I had the CPU changed on my desktop and now whenever I launch Word (or Excel) it tries to connect to the internet. I have to cancel the attempt 3 times. After that Word works fine (as does Excel)
    I have made sure there are no diallers on my system and I cannot think of anything else. I phoned the shop that did the work and they were unable to think of an answer except to bring the machine in, which I am reluctant to do as I have a lot on at the moment
    Can anyone please help?

    Glenn

    Are you running any add-ins that might be trying to update themselves? If you're not aware of any, try the steps laid out in this post:
