Auto redial

by Kiriakos / November 4, 2004 4:10 PM PST

My Webshot software every so tries to connect to their site, triggering this way an automatic dialup even if I am not present. I've checked all settings in their options in order to disable this but I do not find any. Does anyone has a clue of what else I can do?

do you really need the software? if you don't and you don't want this to keep happening, just uninstall the software.

By the way, what is this software called?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
