Dialup connection box

  Meshuga 21:20 17 Nov 2003

My dialup connection box appears on screen as soon as bootup is complete before anything is clicked to go on line. How can I prevent this please so that it only appears when I require to go on line. Thanks, Meshuga.

first of all it shouldn't be starting at startup

have you got zonealarm installed?

i would download adaware which gets rid of spyware, as spyware can cause this problem

when the dialouge box comes up, where is it trying to go,have you let it access the net and see which website it takes you to.

Have a look if there is a shortcut to the connection in your startup folder. If there is delete it. You could also goto start>run then type ms config and have a look for an odd listing or the connection itself in there.

no space between ms and config should read msconfig

Go to "Internet Properties" and tick the box marked "Never Dial A Connection".

Thanks to all who have replied. Tha answers to the questions asked are,I dont have zone alarm but I have preventon firewall,I already have adaware,When the dialogue box appears it just sits there waiting for me to click on Connect
and just puts me on line when I do. I will check out the other suggestions and post back with findings although this wont be `till tomorrow.
Many thanks, meshuga.
