help need with internet settings

  drdeath 14:02 22 Jun 2004

Hello all, i recently used a program called "system mechanic" to help speed up my internet connection and generally clean my pc up, unfortuately after running this program, i now am unable to connect to the internet via internet explorer, when i click on IE- properties/connection/ choose settings, the area marked "never dial a connection" has a dot in it suggesting that when i click on Ie IT WILL NOT DIAL A CONNECTION, so at this point i go to setup ( internet connection wizard) to try and rectify this by setting up the relevant internet connection/account, but the internet connection wizard does not allow me to proceed to set up a new internet connection, i keep recieving the message "the internet connection wizard has not yet finished setting up your connection" IT WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO FULLY PROCEED WITH THIS any help would be grateful thank you p.s im with ukonline windows 98

Have you tried changing the setting in IE > Tools > Internet options > connections to 'Always dial my default connection' ?

The black dot in never dial a connection. Click on the dot to remove it.

Do you have an ISP connection in the box called 'Dial Up and Virtual Private Network settings' ?
If there is nothing in the box can you add a connection from the Add button?
