    I just switched internet service providers and I was wondering how I delete the previous connection from my system. Any help appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Click on MYComputer>Dial-UpNetworking.

    Now locate the connectoid for your Old ISP, right click on it and select delete.

    And if you installed any dialer software for the old ISP, take a look here and if you see it, double left click on it to remove it.

    Start>Settings>ControlPanel>Add/RemovePrograms

    Thank you, Bryan. That worked. Now, how do I keep Outlook from trying to connect from my old ISP? I keep getting an error saying my password is not accepted...of course not, I cancelled the service! :p

    Thank you. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Do you mean Outlook Express or just plain Outlook? I'll assume you have OutlookExpress. If not, let us know.

    In OutlookExpress click on Tools>Accounts. Locate the Old email account, single left click on it to highlight it and click on Remove.

    Then assuming you have a new email account, if the new account is already setup, then your done.

    If it's not yet setup, in the same dialog box click on Add>Mail and setup the new account. Your new ISP should be able to give you the POP mail server address and the SMTP mail server address.

    Let us know what happens.

    Sorry, I think I misread your post but Steve read it correctly. While your in InternetExplorer, follow Steve's instructions and delete the connection for your old ISP under the "Tools>InternetOptions>Connections" tab.

    Thanks Steve .....
