    When I open the control panel the dial-up connection pops up. I only want the dial up box when I click on explorer, which it does. I have win98se.

    Hi kristay, welcome to TSG.

    That's a rather odd one, and I haven't come across it before. But you know what, it's mentioned in this Control Panel troubleshooter (I think they must have just added it!)

    Do a Find Files for *.cpl

    this will locate all files with a .cpl extension. When you click on them they will open as they would if you were in the Control Panel. See if any cause your dialup connection to launch.
