invitation to dial-up

I recently loaded the cover disc McAfee firewall on my old standby PC with Win 98 SE, and at the end was prompted to open an account which I declined as I already have one on this.
Since then, every time I switch on I get the dial-up screen at regular intervals.
Has a tick been installed somewhere to make this happen, not serious but just annoying.
Thanks for any hints or tips. H.

First check the Startup Folder if you see it there right click and delete. Next click Start/Run type MSCONFIG go to startup tab and remove the tick if you see it

Thanks for the tip. Due to my set up I can't try 'till the morning as the spare gear is in a purpose built room in the garage (live in a tiny cottage with room for a laptop only!!).
Will reply, thank you. H
