    Go to Internet options --> Connections and check the option 'Never choose a connection' (or something similar, got a Dutch XP version)

    Go to the program that give you the dial up problem & check their options. In IE go to tools/internet options/connections. Tick 'never dial a connection'. There is a similar one in outlook.
