Assuming you are using Intyernet Explorer go to
Tools - Internet Options - Connections. Then select the radio button for "Never Dial a Connection"

i dont know if this will help you but on mine to stop the dial up box poping up UI goto the little computer icon on the task bar in the right hand corner of desktop double click on it when the adsl boox pops up click properties goto options untick the prompt for name and password ect.

I also get the 'old' Win style dial box pop up
either on its own or with the 2000/XP style one.
Either will work- [I elect to connect rather than be on all the time- safer I think

I stopped it the same way as FreeCell advises.
