Could you do us a favour?

Go to this site, and download 'Hijack This!'.

Unzip it, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

open that file
Go to Edit | Select all
Now click Edit | copy to copy it
Come back to TSF, Right Click and paste its contents here

DNS Lookup

Do you have a Network Card installed?

The most likely problem is that you machine is doing a lookup for a page or if you have a Network card, it is trying to resolves it own computer name.

You can stop this by creating a Hosts file and assigning your Computer name an IP address, this will stop the dial up from happening.

It could also be a Chat application, MSN Messenger or ICQ etc, running at startup and this would trigger a dial up.

Best way is not to have it set to Dial up on demand, and then you are in total control.
