Intrusive dial-up dialog box

  brianthelion 18:48 31 Jul 2004

Windows 98se, Office 2000 - every time I go to open a new Office document I get a dial-up networking dialog box inviting me to make a connection. I "X" this box out (because I don't have broad band), but it happens another six times until the dialog box finally goes away and the document opens. Help!

It as got to be a setting in Office, trying to update itself or something like that
