autoconnecting DIALup=annoying!

everytime i disconect, the modem redials the isp
or i turn the machine on and log on, it dials the isp

Where are the options to turn off this 'when connection is needed, auto dial'
ive got my finger pointing to msn msger/
i checked in control panel>system>advanced in the ICS area as the connection is shared however it does this even when this machines the only one on.
I also checked in modem settings, and internet connection>connect and checked 'never dial connection'

if anyone could tell me because we've had this huge bill and im pointing it down to the machine auto connecting whist i was out
go the properties of dial up connecton and on the option tab make sure redial if line is dropped option is unticked.

also if you use outlook, and possibly others, make sure the option, automatically dial is disabled
i thought of that but its on anyway...
reason being is that its not that... i did have it off but it still did it

what made me think its not that is that it dials as soon as i log on.
will check outlook
ok, i had this problem.. this was my fix... very annoying by the way... dont know why MS done this..

on deskto, right click MY NETWORK PLACES, choose properties, then at the top, choose ADVANCED menu, then dial up preferences...

Untick your ISP and hit ok.

This will fix this hard to find annying problem!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
