I am running Win98se and when I click on the Ie icon the dialup box used to appear on top of yahoo ready to connect it no longer does and I have to connect via OE anyone know how to get the box back please >>>
When you sign up to an ISP they usually provide a disk which installs your dial up connection to your dial up networking and desktop ( e.g. blueyonder connection manager ). You can use this to access the internet .
The reason you should delete the original connection ( from your DUN )is because it has more than likely not been taken from a disk , it has probably been made from 'Make new connection' in the DUN . This is why it will not come up automatically when you click IE .
Alternatively , once the shortcut for this connection is on your desktop or in your DUN , you can click on Internet Explorer/Windows Explorer/Netscape Navigator and this will bring up your username and password box , at which point you can click 'connect'( assuming you have saved your username and password in there already - if not - type them ).
When you sign up to an ISP the DUN connection for your PC does NOT come from this disk but is created on your PC (or downloaded from the ISP) by the setup program from the information you give it when signing up.
Why that would mean "This is why it will not come up automatically when you click IE " i can't even begin to think. Doesn't matter HOW the DUN connection gets on your PC it'll still work.
The second part of what you say is true, but as sgtdibble says it doesn't...
