I normally use ADSL to connect to Internet, but here dial-up is more reliable, so I need to have dial up connection when ADSL is down. How do I prevent programs form attempting to connect to Internet using dial up?

Go to Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections and select "Never dial a connection". Apply and you should be OK.
