I have just reconnected my laptop to a local area network after using a dial-up internet connection for a short while. While I was on dial-up I changed the Internet Settings to always dial my default connection. However, now I am back on the network I have changed the setting back to never dial a connection, but all my Microsoft products are still trying to connect to the dial up, even though they are loading the pages and downloading email before the dial up is complete (i.e. the network internet connection is working fine).

Any ideas about how to correct this would be great.

Delete the dial-up networking option.
This is a common XP complaint where it forgets exactly how its supposed to get online, and the easiest solution is just to delete the connection, so Windows won't try to dial.
