    All of a sudden, I cannot connect to the internet by using my IE connection or my Outlook Express icon but I can by using Dial up Networking, any ideas.

    I have recently done a scanreg /restore.

    I use W98SE

    Outlook Express shares this setting with Internet Explorer so you only have to get IE set right.

    In IE, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections tab, make sure "always dial my default connection" is checked and that the correction connection listed in the box above that is marked as default.

    Click OK to save changes, close IE, make sure you're not connected to the net and then re-open IE which should then trigger dialup.
