I have just formatted and loaded windows back onto the C:\. However when I load Internet Explorer or OE it tries to set up a connection to MSN. How can I stop this, so I can set up the connection details manually? Thanks david

Go into Dial Up Networking in My Computer, manually set up a connection to your ISP and set that as your default connection. Then go to IE > Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab and tick the button which says, "Always dial my default connection".

Sussed it - I deleted the IE & OE MSN Icons, clicked on IE &OE exe short cut Icons and this gave the option of setting up the connection manually.
Maj - your reply helped me to suss it out. Thanks David
