Dial up connection

XP Pro
For some reason my dial up connection box now apprears on the screen when i start up.
The only thing that i have installed in recent weeks is newer versions of norton firewall and system works.
Any sugestions on stopping this automatic pop up?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds as if something wants to connect.

Possibly SystemWorks is set to update on startup. Create the connection and see what the firewall says is connecting.

What programs start with the PC? Maybe one of them wants to connect - eg an AV program for example.

If you are concerned, get a spyware checker - eg AdAware or SpyBot Search and Destroy.

You could try IE tools,internet options open up the connections and tick Never dial a connection apply/ok
