For some reason my pc seems to be regularly connecting to the internet without me initiating it.
I have noticed this happening on a regular basis and although i can see the connection through the dial up dialog i cannot see what is triggering it.
I am not sure but it seems to occur on a time basis whenever the pc is on.
I have also noticed it happening sometimes when i open Explorer. If i halt the connection it and then open explorer again it seems to stop it.
All help welcome

do you have your virus checker set to automatically update itself, this would connect at a preset time. firewall would also do this.....

hope this helps

In Control Panel click Internet Options, then click the Connections tab. Make sure that Never Dial a Connection is selected.
