Mystery Programme Connects to Internet

When I boot up the PC a programme immediately connects to the Internet (using my regular Internet connection, so not too sinister!). The connection is made again immediately if I disconnect.

Is there any way of establishing which programme is making this connection?

Thanks in anticipation.

try ctrl,alt,del after start up see if the program is listed in task manager (windows xp)

Disable the programmes in the task manager until you find the one that is starting the dial up. Leave explorer and systray.
It could be a world time programme trying to sync , a mail client which is set to check for new mail at start up or even an update checker.
