Sounds as if something wants to connect.

Do you have a firewall installed? If so, tell it to ask for all applications before allowing access to the net and then on startup check what is trying to connect.

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

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