    there are some Trojan horses that will cause this. Also, some dialers that install themselves when you visit disreputable porn sites will dial weird numbers, including some that start with 911, without your knowledge.

    If you are having this issue and you use broadband, I would suggest disconnecting your telephone cable from the computer. If you use dial up, I would suggest getting the computer cleaned by a professional and avoiding using IE to surf the web. It is easier to install software without your knowledge if you use it.

    My guess would be a virus.
