Dialup Box appears everytime I connect and...

Dialup Box appears everytime I click Internet Explorer.  Internet was working fine on explorer, but Dialog box asking for username and password with a connection type keeps appearing.  It keeps asking if I want to Connect or Work Offline.   But I tried to adjust the settings to Never dial a connection in Internet Options but that did not work.  Then I removed the Network (VPN) connections completely and now the internet does not work.

I have a broadband connection and am connected through Wireless card to the Router.

What are my issues.  Direction if any would be appreciated.

When it asks to connect, what do you select?  If you cancel that dialog box, will it still allow you to access Web pages?

Its always on, but the connection may go in and out because of distance from the router.

You will see it prompt if it thinks that it does not have a better connection.  Do you have any dial-up connections configured?

I have been looking into this issue and the only thing that I can come up with so far is to check for viruses and/or spyware/adware/malware.

well I would go ahead and try running a winsock fix you can download it here http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html , not so certain that will help but it gives you a level playing field. Lets try that first and we will go from there.

What happens if you launch a different Web browser, like Firefox?

Just to check your VPN connection...

1. Right-click "My Network Places" and select "Properties".
2. Right-click your VPN connection and select "Properties".
3. On the "General" tab, uncheck the box beside "Dial another connection first".

Does that fix it?

Its spyware installed the dialup programs in resgistry so download / install the spybot search & Destroy or Adware and update and use the spybot in advanced mode and scan your pc so it will remove all the spyware and also check   your antivirus is updated properly..

Also check this...

1. Right-click "My Network Places" and select "Properties"
2. Select the "Advanced | Dial-up Preferences" menu item.
3. If prompted for "Location Information", click "Cancel" and then "Yes".
4. In the "Autodial" tab, check the box for "Disable autodial while I am logged on"
5. Click "OK"

What happens when you launch IE?
