Internet Connection keeps popping up on desktop

Hi
My Intenet Connection window keeps popping up on my desktop without prompting. This has only started to happen within the past week or so. Before then I had no problem. I have checked my connection settings in both Internet Explorer and Outlook Express and they seem OK.
Any ideas please?

Mine started doing it after a download of 'JetAudio'.
Haven't found out how to disable it again.

if you are on dial up go to ctrl panel internet options/connections/ and move tick to never dial a connection, but much more likely is an infection with a 'dialler' suggest you d/load adaware and spybot from click here

cheers.

Many programmes can encourage this as they look for updates on a regular basis. Adobe and Zone Alarm are only two. Usually possible to disable this nonsense by selecting "search for updates manually" within the problem software's options
