Possible spyware or program trying to do an update. See what is in the startup folder or get a spare checker. click here for spybotSD

Internet options,

What does it say out of the three radio buttons there?

If you go to start --run, type mscofig in the box and enter. Now pick the start up tab and disable every thing. Reboot.

Now does the dial up box come up. Probably not.

Now you have to got through the laborious process to find which programme is trying to dial out. The usual way is to re tick one at a time and reboot. Or you can do blocks of say 4 and reboot.

The usual culprit is AVG. This is because a tick box on installation had not been un-ticked.
