Connect to internet when it boots up

I have a big problem

when windows starts up it opens dial up connection and connects to internet...
i tried everything that i know

i removed all weird keys in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
and RunServices

i have checked in win.ini and run line is empty

my computer has antivirus installed with updated definitions and it doesnt find anything.

Please if u have any idea how to disable/remove this?

You may want to give Startup Cop a shot - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,2173,00.asp

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Nice link provided above: q175312

You may try this as well:

Open IE>Tools>Internet Options>Connections tab
Click "Never dial a connection"

I'm sure that your problem is a software who wants to send information to Internet. So you have to find this one, with norton internet security, it have something to know which software are running (you find more than with alt-ctrl-del) and you can disable these ones. And the best with norton internet security, it ask you if you want let the software access internet, when you got the name of the software who try to reach internet, you just have to do a quick search to find which software use this file.
GOT PROBLEM, ASK THE BEST :-)

You have most of it covered already. I just want to add that there is a "\Run" key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER as well as in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Might be worth checking. I assume you looked for the obvious - the Startup folder.

Did you install any programs lately?  Programs like Real Player and Zone Alarm likes to dial to the Internet. I use a firewall to determine which programs is trying to dial home.
