    Whenever I ty to connect to the Internet
    a screen with dial-up script error comes
    up. I have to type my user name into
    a terminal screen to connect. This isn't
    a major problem, but annoying.Ive
    tried to set this up right but the program
    says this file doesn't exist, making me
    feel like an insecure nobody. Please
    help me convince my computer that I
    really do exist.

    I'm not sure if it shows an error # but I'll check next time I log on.
    I have noticed it looks different than other messages and brings
    up a black screen when I click OK and hit Terminal Screen at the bottom. It took me a week to even find Terminal Screen so I
    could log on! Embarrassing to admit. I'm also having yet another internet problem that I'm just about ready to blame on the full
    moon. When I click on URLs, instead of taking me there, this
    #@%$*! computer now has a baby screen at the top I have to
    restore. If it doesn't behave I'm getting a hammer soon.

    annieskid,

    Unless your ISP requires a script to connect, go to My Computer > Dial-Up Networking.

    You should see an icon for your ISP here. Right-click on the icon and select 'Properties'.

    Click on the tab labeled 'Scripting'. If you have anything listed in the File name: field, remove it. Uncheck any boxes that are checked.

    Click 'OK' and try the connection again.
