After install some software (3M Post-it Notes, ACD See, FreeMem and GetRight, I think...), windows launches the dialup conection box automatically at startup.
If I cancel it, noprob. But if I connect then the conection monitor isn't showed at tray icon.
How can I disable the automatic dialup at startup 'feature'?
Sorry for my bad english =)
Tnx in advance.

Killiam,
Go to your dialup networking.  When at that, right click your connection and go to properties.  You will see a scripting tab.  Click that and see if anything is in the script file area.  Delete that and see if it helps.

Killiam,
(1)  First, try to disable any autodial within the programs. Check up your software programs' options or preferences.

(2)  You may also try to search for the startup to remove any loading of the programs to call for internet connection.
At start-run, type "msconfig" without the quotation and OK to open the system configuration utility. At the Startup tab, inspect if you have any additional startup programs that is the suspect.
Uncheck all of them except followings: -
ScanRegistry
TaskMonitor
SystemTray
LoadPowerProfile (2 checkboxes)
Restart the computer. Observe if the message has gone.
Then checked each one by one again to identify the source.

(3)  If the above still cannot find out which program causing the auto-dialup, go to amend the registry.
Method:
Start-run, type "regedit" without the quotation, OK to open the registry editor. Drill to the folder
My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
On the right pane there are names with Data as followings: -
Name                  Data
AutoConnect        00 00 00 00
EnableAutodial     00 00 00 00

Select each of the name and right click to select modify and change the first value of Data from 00 to 01, OK.
Name                  Data
AutoConnect        01 00 00 00
EnableAutodial     01 00 00 00

OK and exit the registry editor.
Restart the computer.

Let me know if it worked.     pslh

If you're not comfortable with editing the registry, (make a backup first)
as mentioned above, you may want to realign it first, by booting to dos,
not the dos box, and at the prompt, type

scanreg/fix    and hit enter.

Should that not work, make a notation of your DUN settings, and remove the connection.

After restart, reboot to dos and execute scanreg/fix again.

Reinstall your connection.

That problem might be caused by GetRight. You can either uninstall it (like I did) or mess with its options until the autodial problem is gone. Personally - and I think many of you will disagree - I think GetRight isn't as good as it promises.

A simple solution would be to open dial-up networking window (from My Computer or the Start Menu), go to Connections, then Settings.  Make sure prompt for info is checked, and select prompt to use dial up networking.  That way, the dial-up box should appear before attempting to connect, giving you the opportunity to dial or cancel.

The solution came with the (3) method, the problematic field was AutoConnect and the correct value is (00) not (01) as it was. =)
Thanks a lot!
