Internet connection

I used to have to click on the Internet icon to enable dialup connection. Now the dial up connection appears during startup and begins to automatically dial - how can I go back to having the dial up only when I click on the Internet icon?

What OS are you running If it is XP go to control panel-internet options and check under connections which circle has the spot in it.

Have you got your settings in Outlook Express set to "Connect even if working offline"? (Under Tools>Options>General tab)
