Hmmm this sounds funky!

You either have internet explorer in your "startup" folder or you have a program that attempts to access the net through internet explorer when it starts.

If you allow it to connect when it popps up does your homepage come up or does it take you to a product's page?

I dont' know what operating system version you are using, but usually in the start menu ---> programs there is a folder called "startup".

If internet explorer is in there delete it. Pretty much anything you don't want in there can be deleted.
