Dial up connect pop up box

This is starting to annoy me.
When I use my Browser offline about every minute I get a Dial Up Connect pop up box appear of which I have to keep canceling, when viewing HML Documents saved in My Docs the same thing happens,and in Word as well.It seems that my PC wants to keep conecting to the web without my approval
I have tried checking all my settings but I still cant fathom this out,Any Ideas????!
I use Firefox, O/S win2K pro
