My computer spontaneously logs on to the internet several times a day. Almost always when I first turn it on in the mornings but also irregularly throughout the day. I have tried telling it I don't want to check my e-mails at regular intervals (wherever I found that instruction don't ask me!) but still it keeps logging on which is going to cost me in wasted connection time while we still don't have Broadband in our area.

Help!

Try a spyware scan with spybot or ad-aware,also if you have msn this sometimes dials up on its own,same for virus apps if they set to check for update at boot,look in your connections folder see if there is only the 1 connection and u dont have any dialers hideing there,in the mean time tick never dial a connection in IE properties/connections tab this may stop it dialing.
