Please help. I have always had my internet connection set as "always dial my default connection". This worked fine with outlook express as well upuntil a few weeks ago. Now all of a sudden when I switch on the machine it dials automatically with the dial up connection box coming up. Also if I disconect from the internet the dial up box comes up and starts dialing automatically. If I change the setting to" never dial a connection" the dial up box will come up in outlook express but not when I open explorer. I have looked on the helpline advice and looked in the startup but cannot find anything that is starting it up automatically.
Hello loopyloo. I have experienced similar problems on XP with NTL. I evenually cured it (I hope) by deleting both outlook express and ntl dial up connection, then reinstalling both. You may have tried this, but like you I did concentrate on altering my configuration to no avail. Good luck
I have deleted my intenet connection and outlook express, still the same problem. Spikeychris gave me some information to try looking in the start menu folder in windows and deleting dial-up networking. I have gone through windows folder and I can not find anywhere the startup folder. PLease can you help me, this is driving me mad.
