Automatic Connecting to Internet

Whenever I use Windows Explorer my computer tries to connect to the internet. I have checked my Connection properties these are unchanged. Something must have changed as all was well before todaey I am running IE 6 and Windows ME

Is this a dial-up connection? If so in Internet Explorer, Tools/Internet Options, Connections tab check that it is NOT set to "Always dial my default connection".

You may have picked-up some spyware that is trying to phone home. Try Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here

Thanks Vog, the Ad adware free software sorted it out.
