I am connected to boradband with a gateway through ethernet.

Sometimes when i am on the net i get the box saying that a program wants to connect to the net. the box is the one that shows when you connect to the net through dial-up.

the program is


I have disabled the item saying never dial a connection in internet options. so i dont think is connected. its just that it is using some of my resources in windows task manager.

I have tried looking for it on my harddrive and have scanned my pc using virus software and adaware and micorosft spyware programs but still cant see it. i did find 2 files on my pc which seem to be related to it and have now deleated them but it still trys to connect.

Is it a program i need?
