Win 7 keeps trying to "Dial up*

Hi all, I am using Win 7 which for some reason keeps trying to make a "Dial Up" connection at random even though it already has a working broadband connection. I can't find anything in the settings that would cause this.

Go to Start>Control Panel>Internet Options and make sure Never dial a connection is checked.

Hi

Go Start Control Panel Network and Internet Internet Options Connections tab Select "Never dial a connection" OK

That should sort it.
