Default Question of curiosity

Every few weeks, my IE Internet Options/Connections setting goes from
"Always dial my default connection" to "Never Dial a Connection".

And it appears to do it all on it's own. (Obviously something is causing it)

Any idea what?

LOL! No, I am the only user. Surely the only one who knows that things
like options exist. :-)

The only thing i did not mention was that since most everything -- Power
DVD, Winamp, WMP, etc., wants to dial the net that i changed my ISP dialer
from auto-connect to connect on my command.

I really don't know. Perhaps if you did a MS critical update or a repair on IE,
it might change back.
Hopefully one of the VPs or someone else will have the solution.
