When I open up device manager I get the internet connection dialoge box popping up.
Also happens if I try to open CD drive.

Mine used to do this (With DM). Stopped when I re-formated some months ago. Never did find out what it was. But. It does happen when I boot up and sometimes at other times for no apparrant reason. Once when I opened Paint Shop Pro's help file. I blame Norton AV and its habit of checking ever file when you access them. I've got used to it now. It's just a nuisance.
