My computer keeps on connecting to the internet, when I don't want it to it is happening every minute or so. I have virus scanned with recent updates Nortons and run Adaware. I have remove numerous things but it is still happening. Any suggestions. Thanks :confused:

With Internet Explorer open click tools /Internet Options/Connections then click never dial a connection.
This will stop it trying to connect .
Maybe something is trying to update itself.
You have to find out what.
Have a look at the faqs on spyware etc to help you track it down.

Also check your Schedualed Tasks. Do you hav Norton System Works or something else that keeps your connection alive?
