Have you downloaded/installed any software that checks for updates? if so...

1. Right-click Start, and then click Open.

2. Double-click the Programs folder.

3. Double-click the Startup folder.

4. Drag the program that automatically checks for updated components or
Web
pages from the Startup folder to another folder. This prevents the
program
from starting when Windows starts.

Have you just installed a Lexmark printer?

Go to start and type msconfig check whats running under startup...

Look in 'Startup' to see if the Dialer is being activated there or see if it is being activated by msconfig.

If in startup delete it

if in msconfig edit the registery to remove the entry for the dialer at :-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
