I believe you'd have to look at each piece of software you have to check for automatic connectivity. I know that with both Macs and PCs you can set the system to automatically dial a default connection.
To find out where they actually are located in the system, check out this site:
www.chasms.com it's excellent for troubleshooting connections.

hi,

there's a freeware program available called ZoneAlarm. It detects and blocks (if you want it to) all or selected connections. I'd suggest you use this to determine which program is trying to connect. It'll save you time because you want have to search yourself.
