Your dial-up may be configered to autormatically connect whenever a program need to access the internet If you have any programs that require access to the internet they would try to access online, your dial up with automaticilly connect to the internet

To check your dial-up settings and change them, go to control panel select internet options, select connection tab, in the dial-up and Virtual private network settings sections you should see your dial-up connection listed Just below that you should see connection settings if Always dial my default connection is selected, change to Never dial a connection - by doing that your dial-up will not dial automatically but when you select it to connect.
