Stopping the automatic dialing...

I'm not really sure what I did to my system, but for the last two mornings, my PC will automatically connect to the internet....

I keep it on around the clock, and while I was watching TV the other morning (in the other room), it just started dialing.

I have WindowsXP Home, and an internal 56k USR modem. I just did some major updating to my video card, and the Nvidia and VIA drivers associated with it, but I didn't think that would make the needed changes.

Does anybody have any ideas of where to look to stop this? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

In internet explorer > tools > internet options > connections
there, click on "never dial a connection" for the dial-up u use that should do it. :)

indeed! and i dont mean to assume anything, but stop visiting porno sites that have free *.exe download poro clips or mp3 search engine thingies

I would be more concerned with why it was trying to dial.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
