Modem dials ISP in the middle of the night

I have noticed the last couple of weeks that my modem has been dialing up my ISP and logging on in the middle of the night.  I don't have anything scheduled, email does not come up, and not browser comes up.  Any ideas what could cause this?

Open up Internet options>connections>settings, and make sure that the 'connect automatically to update subscriptions' check box is not checked.

That was a good idea but that box wasn't checked.  Any other suggestions to check?

Your Email client may be dialing to download new messages. In Outlook Express You would check Tools>Options>Dialup and see if
automatically dial when checking for new email is selected. Your client, whatever it is, may have a similar feature.

go to the start, programs, accesories,system tools,Schedule task, favorites,Manage Subscription, and delete the entries you find in there. make sure they are deleted. then reboot. and go back and check if they are there. That should solve it. I had the same problem before.
