I am unable to complete the process of making a new connection using the Win2000 Connection Wizard. I get to the final step where the wizard asks for the name of the connection and I get a message that the name I have entered is not valid either because it started with a space or because of punctuation errors. In fact, the variety of names I have tried all adhered strictly to the rules specified. The wizard throws me back to the request for a new name, and I am never able to complete the establishment of the connection.

This comes about because of the fact that a couple days ago, I merged two hard drive partitions into one using Partititon Magic and in the process, some files obviously became corrupted. There were other problems as well which I have been able to repair using the repair facility in the Win2K installation disk and the repair facility in Microsoft Office. I have scanned the regiistry using Register Mechanic and cleaned up all the problems it found, but my remaining problem seems to lie in the Remote Access Service Manager. This situation leaves me in the position of not being able to access the internet in any way which is most frustrating.

Suggestions?

It suggests that some corruption to the WIndows system files still remains.

Merging partitions on a live boot disk is not something I would ever contemplate without a new fresh WIndows install.
