Recently, a strange thing is happening. My dial-up connectiod pops-up every now & then without me starting it. It pops-up even if I open some other application. Is it a virus or a virus related program trying to connect to the internet ? I checked my start-up section and it is not there also. I have installed Norton Antivirus 2001 and enabled Auto Live Update. But that does not do this kind of stuff. It gives a message before starting the update activity normally.
