Network Connections Problem

Posts: n/a
I have a broadband connection at home and I am having a little problem
with a Network Connections box coming up when I first start browsing
after making a connection to the internet.

This is what I get if I start with Google.

The box comes up headed

Network Connections

You (or a program) have requested information from Which connection do you want to use?

It then comes up with a list of connections (ie BT Voyager 100 ADSL
Modem Connection)

A Box with Don't ask me until the next time I log on (unchecked)
A Settings Button A Connect Button and A Cancel Button.

If I Click on settings a new window comes up with Enable autodial by
location. With "Home" as the only location.

The at the bottom there is 2 boxes,
Always ask me before autodialing (unchecked)
Diasable autodial while I am logged on (unchecked)

This has only started happening in the last week.

I Am running Windows XP Pro SP2.
Norton Firewall 2003
Norton Antivirus 2003

I have scanned my computer with Adaware And Spybot (both updated).

Does anyone know of a way of removing this box from coming up every time
I want to surf, or have I found a new "Feature" of sp2.

Thanks for any help.

If you have nothing to do, then do nothing and enjoy it!
