I've checked everything I know, although, I just installed WinXp a few days ago. But now, it keeps dialing me back online when I log off. What could be doing this? I use Firefox. Could it be AVG anti-virus? I can't see anything in it that would make it auto-dial.

Start/Control Panel/Internet Options/Connections Tab

Change settings to 'Never dial a connection'.

Your XP install must have defaulted you to a setting that dials you up when you go offline.
