Perhaps you have a "dialer" on board, try running some anti-spyware [loads to read on previous threads]

Check Control Panel - Internet Properties - Connections. Your anti-virus program may be looking for updates and if your settings are "Dial whenever a network connection is not present" or "Always dial my default connection", that box will appear. You could set it to "Never dial a connection" and then choose when to dial up.
