In the past if I wanted to go on the internet I just clicked on Internet explorer & it went on to the internet.

Now it sometimes but not always connects without me asking it to,how do I stop it doing this.

Are you on dial up or broadband?

I assume you have a dial-up line, and what is occurring is that IE is being loaded without your instruction. Can you replicate this? Can you identify an action that you take just before the dial-up box comes up (this might not be immedaitely if te PC is slow). What OS are you running?

If you are on dial-up, then you urgently need to install something like this Anti-Dialler click here

No I am on Tiscali Broadband and it only connects without asking now and then, like this morning.

Quite likely to be your antivirus or other software checking for updates.
