I visit this site without problem. occasionaly the site is down, but i've never heard of a line dropping by visiting a site - this is very odd. or do you mean you just cannot connect to it - do you have to reboot after a visit?

No I just drop the connection and my old dial up software pops up. I can click on anything and a box pops up saying connect. Just found it a bit odd that I only get it on this site."I wanna be a Guitar Hero"

it would probably be a good idea to remove any refernce from your old dial up from internet explorer

@Leon in internet explorer, goto tools, options, connections and set the radio button to never dial a connection.
see if that helps.

I have kept the old dial up as a backup if sky is down I can still dial onto internet. I have changed setting to never dial a connection but on reboot eplorer changes it back to dial whenever a connection is not present."I wanna be a Guitar Hero"

Norton and adaware say all is ok I think it's got something to do with the old btinternet stuff I had on the pc."I wanna be a Guitar Hero"

I'd trust adaware but not Norton. When I switched a couple of years ago I was stunned to find several nasties that Norton had missed.
I expect you're fine but to be safe I'd run an online scan. Panda is very highly regarded http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm or f-secure http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml (my preference as it will also check for dreaded rootkits which can hide from Norton no problem).
Ewido is an excellent alternative to Adaware.
