Yes if Internet options - connections - always dial my default connection is ticked.

However it is sometimes better to have never dial aonnection ticked if on dial up then your connection box comes upmis something like a dialer or trojan attempts to access the net.

It will only go to your ISP's home page if uou have set this as your hope page. In IE, Tools/Internet Options to do this.
