You have some software trying to phone home.

If this is recent, think back to what you installed just before this started happening.

If you haven't knowingly installed anything yourself, do a thorough check for spyware/adware as you may have picked up something you wish you hadn't which is trying to dial a premium rate phone line.

Install and run these click here and click here
