Continues Dial-up Connection Prompt to Connect to a Network

For the last few days, I have been noticing the continues appearance of dial-up connection requests made by my computer though there is no modem connected to my computer. At first I did not pay much attention to this but at last, it started irritating my works. It is a dial-up connection window which asks me to select the service I want to connect my computer. It has a list of pre-configured dial-up connections (these connections were made by me only) and gives options either to connect to any network or cancel it. Even though I cancel the connection request it comes back after a few minutes. SO I decided to find out the reason for this continues connection requests. The connection request is just like the image provided below.
