I have checked the dialup properties in Outlook, Outlook Express, IE6 and Norton. My computer tries to connect to the Internet randomly without interaction from me. I have scanned with Norton which is uptodate. No virus found. Can anyone help

Thanks

Also check you donot have any third party tool that is doing this auto dialing

check your task scheduler

Also check if you had turned on Windows automatic update. if yes, disable it

Also have a zonealarm firewall by which you can know which program is dialing

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

Greetings, cpu69!

Programs like to dial to their homepage to get update. Media Player and Real Player do this. Go their preference or option section and turn the auto update off. Check for other startup programs in System Configuration Utility also.

I recommend using a software firewall like Zone Alarm. It catches the programs dialing out as well as in.  That is how I found my Sony update was dialing home and turn off the program.

Best wishes, war1

Much easier way is:

IE - Internet Options - Connections: Check the "Never dial a connection" option. This way - no auto dial-up will be done.
Create a shortcut to your internet dialer on the desktop.
When you need to connect to internet - just dial the connection manually.
