dial up box appears unprompted,..also disconnects

  mermaid25 20:00 20 Nov 2005

Sometimes on start up(not every time), the window to connect to the internet appears. I have run all the scans... spybot, Norton, MS Antispy, ewido, adaware, and all they found was the usual cookies, which I deleted.

Also sometimes when I am on a website I find that I've been disconnected.
I have checked the connections and there are no boxes checked that shouldn't be.
Is my ISP trying to annoy me into changing to broadband..(Will do so when my renovations are finished and can move the PC)
any thoughts?
