When a friend gets to the point " How do you want to connect to the internet the only option she has is using a broadband connection" she wants the option using a dial-up modem how can she fix this thanks.

she is unable to click Start under Service status as its greyed out,think its time for a new install of xp.

has she ever used dial up networking to access the net?, if so then you could try System Restore back to a time when it did work, beats a full re-install anyday.

good luck
