    I would like to have my Win 98 dial up when I boot up. I got Weatherbug and Intellicast and suddenly I was automatically being dialed up. Well, I really didn't need Intellicast on Start Up, so I checked it off Start Up, and then there were no more automatic Start Ups. I clicked them back on, but the automatic dial ups were gone. In fact, when I went to internet options > connections, the "never dial up connections" box was checked. Hmmmm. I, of course, checked the "dial my default connections" box--but I would like to have the dial up connection do it automatically, so that I can be doing other things while "Hamlet" is warming up and checking out the maze. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Just create a shortcut to Internet Explorer and place it in your Start Menu > Programs > Startup folder.

    I think we can mark this one solved RollinRog. Again, thank you very much. It's kind of nice to wake up with an answer to an annoyance.

    I wish you a really nice day.
