Might be some sort of spyware,,go to start,run,and type in ,,,Msconfig
then click the StartUp Tab, then expand it so you can see it real good,
and see if there's something thats checked ,that looks weird to you.
Just un-check it.

What is the title of the box that comes up?

If it is remote desktop then click properties, options tab, and check out the redialing options.

If I'm not mistaken, the "connect to" box is for dial-up. Check your IE Options, under connections and make sure there is nothing in the listing (that shouldn't be there) and that "never dial a connection" is selected. It sounds to me like it's trying to connect to the internet all the time via dialup.
