A. The easiest way to do this is to disable the RAS AutoDial service:
- Start the services control panel applet (start - settings - control panel - services)
- Scroll down to "Remote Access AutoDial Manager" and select
- Click the Startup button and change the startup to Manual. Click OK
- If you want to stop if now just click the Stop button
- Click the Close button
To re-enable you would repeat the above but change the startup to automatic.
