Connecting to the Internet automatically

It is doing it again - Windows XP Home - My computer connects to the internet without any help from me. I have checked the box in tools/internet options/Connections - Never Dial A Connection. I have let the PC connect and see what happens, in case there is a program trying to access a web site - but nothing. Any ideas please?

Hi Woodmouse 11. If you have a firewall running, such as ZoneAlarm, this should tell you if a program is trying to access the internet. You should also download and run AdAware from Lavasoft click here in case some malware is responsible.
