Illegal Operations caused by TAPISRV

  [DELETED] 21:35 19 Nov 2003

Computer has just had it's hard disk formatted and W98se reinstalled. All is fine except that at random when in just about any programme or file I get Illegal Operation messages all referring to TAPISRV or Dialup Networking cannot start. As I was not attempting to dialup at the time and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong in my Internet connection set up, I wondered if anyone had any ideas as to what is causing this and how to remedy it. No other problems and connecting to the Internet is fine.

Problem resolved as I eventually discovered that the computer engineer who did the reinstall had not downloaded the BT Internet Connection Manager from the BT website and had just copied the saved data from pre-formatting the Hard Disk. A quick download of the BT Connection Manager sorted the problem instantly.
