Hi Guys,

This a bit of a puzzler: I recently upgraded my cable modem. Now, whenever I power on my PC, my web-browser (Firefox) automatically pops up and displays a web-page ("branded" with my ISP's logo) with a warning message telling me that my cable modem is down (this is because my PC boots up far quicker than the cable modem is able to). If I allow my modem to fully boot/start and THEN turn on my PC, this doesn't happen.

Question is: How is this browser pop-up occurring? I can't see any startup processes and I certainly didn't install any additional software when I installed the modem (it was a simple hardware swap).

Second question is: How do I disable it and see whether any other stuff has been 'installed' when I upgraded the modem?
