Default Annoying "trying to connect to internet" issue.

Was wondering if anyone could help me with this. Somehow a while back I enabled something on my computer that keeps trying to connect to a dial-up service. I don't know how I did it at all, but it's very frustrating.

Once every 30 minutes (I'm guessing) I'll get a pop-up that'll say "Dial-up connection" and ask me to connect, even though I'm already connected. It does this continuously and it's really frustrating when I'm playing an online game and this pop-up loads and it minimizes the game so I have to pay attention to it. If I don't cancel it out it'll just stay there and a second one wont pop-up. Only problem is if I keep it up and I'm online, often times a webpage won't load up. I have to close out the stupid thing to get the webpage to load. 30 minutes later, or even a minute later it asks me to connect again.

Here's a picture of what it looks like:

I seriously don't know what the hell I did to do this. Any information? Thank you.
