Help!!

Can anyone please tell me how to kill the dial up connection which is making my life really miserable, it pops up even when I have my modem unplugged and when I close or click cancel it just disappears for a second and returns. I close this box several times before it finally gets the message that I do not want to connect, but within 10 minutes it happens again and this continues as long as the laptop is on. see attachment pic to identify the nasty pop up. I can get rid of it totally as I do not use this to connect anyway.

Welcome Mr.WhiskeyGolf to SF,
In local network connections just disable local area connection either 1 or 2 which ever is the dial up.

Thank you to all respondents.

I cannot yet tell if it is going to work, I could not get a Disable command when right clicking so I took the next best option and deleted the sucker. holding thumbs that I have killed it, Damn thing was like a Trojan Virus Worm on steroids.

I know the feeling I had that issue long ago with a XP machine when I jumped from dial up to Ethernet.

I will try my best to make as if I know what Ethernet is, but please don't elaborate because I would be lost pretty soon.

The cable from the router(Ethernet) versus the phone cable (dial up).
