computer logs itself on to internet

Could anyone explain please why my computer logs itself onto the internet. I have not as far as I'm aware any logon schedules and the logging on is random. Nothing like an update is triggered and it just stays on the net. I have set the internet to switch off after no activity for five minutes but this quite often does not work. Have I been bugged ? This only started to happen after I got a new (home build)computer with Windows XP. Any help to exorcise this ghost very welcome

Try turning off windows auto update.... it doest show its updating.

Do you have a virus checker....if so turn off its auto update.....oh and do a full scan.
