I know its sounds silly and I will probably get slated for this (as a PC Tech meself I should know this) but I have tried in vain and I cant get my internet connection to connect automatically when Windows XP starts up...I have Always Dial My Connection ticked in the Internet Options under Connections tab but still its not working...i have done this before but that was before I had to format and reinstall Win XP...any help guys? Sorry to be a pain...and to think I am meant to know this myself!

Paste this "c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" into run and drag your Internet Exploer to it.
