Go to tools/ internet options/connections in Internet Explorer (or thru the icon on the desktop).

Change the option here to never dial a connection.

Double check , if set properly check for Phone dialler (Scam ware).

There are other things that can cause this, but Dialers can cause problem solving with Telescam which is allways time consuming.

You should be doing a SpyBot scan, as well as a full anti-virus scan

Run a firewall like Zonealarm which will tell you what is trying to connect.
