My computer has been doing this for two-three-four months now. Does anyone know what I could do to fix this? I have dialup internet.

Erm, maybe a piece of Adware is trying to connect and so it just connects. Try Downloads.com, and then search for Ad-Aware.

what isp do you have? some dialup hosts arn'tvery good and they'll just boot you off the server sometimes.
I saw some people suggested spyware couldbe the problem. This could be true. A good spyware detection program I use is Webroot SpySweeper. but it's not free.
