What did make you think this is avast related?
avast does not have a dialer or a connection killer feature...

For me, that seems to be an Outlook setting (are you talking about MS Outlook, not Express, aren't you?).
Is Outlook set to download email messages when starts?
Can you disable/enable the avast! plugin into Outlook? (About dialog of Outlook)?

Try to find out what program or service is trying to connect. If you have windows XP, check the system log files. They might give you a clue.

It only does it when avast is on. I have Win Me with Outlook Express.

Live would be so beatiful if you never had to change anything! so why change a virusscanner  ;)

Ok, because you like Avast!, just as we do....

But, to the case.

1. You're using Outlook Express. Which version?
2. What is the setting for: Extra - Options - Connection - Warn when selecting other connection
3. What is the setting for: Extra - Options - Connection - Hangup after send and receive message's

Because I also don't think it's a Avast! related thing.

It's very hard to say that avast! is responsible for your problem... avast! has nothing to do with connecting or reconnecting your internet connection.

Have you ever started avast! mail protection wizzard ? Try to do that and choose AUTOMATICALY PROTECT ALL MY ACCOUNTS, and put the checkmark under AUTOMATICALY PROTECT ALL ACCOUNTS THAT I CREATE IN THE FUTURE... it may help you.

However, my personal opinion is that your system could be infected with one of those nasty dialers... check your system for spyware, adware, dialers etc. Use Ad-aware, Spybot - Search & Destroy, HiJackThis, CWShredder or BHODemon...

Also, you can always check your system online for trojans and viruses (for free), using Mictro Trend's online scanner Housecall... Click here: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Just as I said... my theory was the right one, again...

I'm glad you finally fixed your problem.
